ABOUT LISA FOLINO

ABOUT HER WORK
“In my work I have never strived to make a perfect photograph, in fact I have embraced the imperfections and accidents in the photographic process.”
The portfolio “Grace and Truth” is an exploration of physical and metaphorical transformation. An accident occurred in my studio I spilled chemicals on my Polaroid film that caused what I thought to be severe damage to the polaroids. I threw them out, but retrieved them the next day and put them away. Years later I went to look at the mages only to discover that time had transformed them.
This new found process allowed me to alter the original photographic image from one state to another. As time passed, the exposed in-camera images changed, hence new landscapes appeared. A new world emerged from the original black background. The integral component in the changing evolution of these images is time itself. Like a fossil unearthed the images are fragmented and degraded. As with a fresco’s aging plaster; the imagination is forced to fill in the voids. My desire is to create images that convey the passage of time, and my desire to transcend time through my work. Today these polaroids continue to change as the past makes it’s way into the present and future.
