Three points of information exist each time we perceive an object visually: the actual state of our perception, the visual image we register as "seen," and the image that is used to convey this information.
The camera function in the devices we carry around today serves to bridge the gap between these three points of information with minimal time, error, and "misunderstanding." This misunderstanding is not a defect of cameras but is inherent in our visual perception.
We seldom crop out an object from a single perspective or focal point as in a photograph, nor do we move our gaze slowly and continuously as in a moving image. However, the precision and unparalleled ease with which we can capture the structure of an object has had such a powerful impact that our efforts to represent objects "as they are perceived" are now measured against the appearance of images captured by cameras. Motivated by a desire to interrogate this situation, my research has revolved around the representation of objects as they are perceived through painting while also exploring the process through which information is processed by our vision and the construction of more appropriate depictions.
It is important to recognize the possibility that the solution to these questions may be far beyond the reach of our understanding relative to the necessary premises set out for this research.
