Golem Valise I - in the making...initially placed in old drawer
Thumbnail sketch for Golem Valise I
After interpreting hundreds of real photographs by hand-painting directly onto fired porcelain and then letting chance distort the image further through a second firing, I decided to look into inventing photographs that only suggest a given moment. I also wanted this piece to suggest the actual birth of images.
I remember developping reels of film as a kid and often recieving back the prints with stickers on them, placed there by the lab technicians, advising me that they lacked light or there was too much and so on. This series which I've called 'Golems' dwells on those under-exposed or over-exposed moments that may hide valuable information or on the contrary, enhance them.
The porcelain panels are first created and fired. Each image is then hand-painted with oxides directly onto the once-fired porcelain and then fired a second time. The end result is literally a fossilised painting which strongly resembles a photograph.
