Elmarie Pretorius - "Wading"
W: 670mm x H: 2000mm
This work is unframed
This work is based on massive work I made with ink on linen. I took the posed photograph and had it printed at a massive scale (2m x 67cm) THe surface is worked with thousands of tiny red dots of oil-paint and glass-stain creating an embodied landscape with a glittering surface mass.
My work draws from an intense interest in the play between photographic and painterly media, as well as contemporary interest in the philosophy around the animal and art. I tend to focus specifically on companion animals but I am also interested in current re-workings of traditional concepts surrounding landscapes. I work with my own photographs and found images which I rework in miniature before printing it on a large scale. I often rework the final surface as well.
