Fizz Fieldgrass radically alters photographic imagery by an innovative physical process.
Digital manipulation of an image within its frame and plane is nowadays a commonplace means to create an alternative perception of it. The artist here sets out a different ground where the image is reworked as a ‘form’ rather than an illusory representation, thus it transcends its original conventional representation via actual physical change.
Other processes such as collage or montage, exploit photographic imagery through the cutting or dismembering of pictures for re-assembly, so giving them a different context by becoming part of a new whole. But here a photographic image itself as a whole is reworked to create something fresh, resulting in unique visions of an ephemeral and timeless nature.
