While doing the photography work for Solipsism, I noticed how the color of photographs would shift as they are repeatedly taken and printed. I followed this process through – taking photos of photos – until the colors stabilized, usually after 10 generations. I found the shift in color and form beautiful and painted a variety of subjects.
This idea of repeated imaging seemed an apt metaphor to the evolution of ideas over time, as when stories are passed from generation to generation. I captured this idea in the two double-sided panels Christ and Jefferson, focusing on the religious and political aspects of this process.
