Old Picture (Bed)
Watercolor on Inkjet Print
I printed Matthew’s photograph using my inkjet printer. For me, he stayed somewhere between the real and the virtual, and if I printed the image out, it became a false image. It was like a photograph from a long time ago, with no relevance or persuasiveness. The watercolor was applied to the print, just like people painted black and photographs in the old time. As I put more watercolor, the likeliness appeared and disappeared. I didn’t wanted the image to be too far apart from what I know of him, so I stopped painting. However incomplete it is, the photograph seemed more real to me than the inkjet print did. Long long time later, when the ink fades away and water color stays, it may become a nice watercolor painting.
