Visual artist Cynthia Greig collects everyday objects and whitewashes them with ordinary house paint to devoid them of color or label. Then draws directly onto their surfaces with charcoal to create visual hybrids that appear to vacillate between drawing and photography, black-and-white and color. No digital manipulation is involved, but the camera’s monocular point of view is imperative.

My series of photographs, Representations, explores the concept of photographic truth and its correspondence to perceived reality. As a kind of playful homage to William Henry Fox Talbot’s treatise, The Pencil of Nature, the images combine color photography and drawing to create what I like to call photographic documents of three-dimensional drawings.
