Barnes - Stung Girl with Public

Stung girl with public, ca. 1835, after Bartolini


Carson Barnes

(Griffin, GA) 

Archival pigment print 

"I appropriate themes and imagery from the history of art to reconfigure environments that address contemporary anxieties.

My artworks are “staged” through the process of layering my photographic and hand-rendered imagery with stock photography and digital textures. I utilize experimental printmaking techniques, especially in the play between different surface qualities of ink/paint/pigment, in a final output of 3-6 prints per image. Final prints are then embellished with hand-applied media, including: ink, gouache, pastel, acrylic, collage/assemblage and/or enamel."
