Abstract

The project of this exhibition and accompanying symposium, is to address something fundamental in the act of picture-making: the transformation of a found or captured image, into a picture, through material process. Jean-Michel Chevrier, in a recent seminar series on the history and discourse of pictorial composition and the tableau (Central Saint Martin’s College of Art, London 2012), explored the complex distinction between image and picture (noting that the English term picture is not quite the same as the French tableau, but is close to it in many ways). The project researches the idea that a picture is not an image; it is something more than an image, it has another dimension. An image can be reproducible; it can be an ‘instantaneous composition’, a form of seeing that does not involve picture-making nor have the picture’s autonomy as an object. Of course, in these terms, a photograph can be either an image or a picture; this is not a debate about medium, but rather about the pictorial, about picture-making and its temporality.
The exhibited practice-based research investigates the possibilities of re-making, or re-seeing recorded images that painting and drawing open up and the distinction between an immediate image, and a constructed pictorial address.
The project explores a range of issues involved in picture-making: composition, quotation, transcription, materiality, re-invention etc. By exhibiting forms of documentation along with completed works, and discussing different approaches to practice-based research in a public forum, it explores something of the usually tactic aspects of artistic process in the dialogue between image source and picture-making
