Two Ipods

Joan Marie Giampa, 2010

Acrylic on Canvas, 36”x 42” 

 

 

 

  

 

 

 

"I carve into the wet gessoed canvas with the butt of a paintbrush an imprint of the 'image skeleton'.  I scrub into the surface ground with multiple layers of paint and rub paint into the grooves of the dried gesso surface.  Additional layers of paint are then brushed lightly over the beveled edges of the image to unearth the skeletal impression. More layers of paint are brushed on and wiped away as the image becomes the surface ground and the surface ground becomes the image. It is this process of digging into the canvas and discovering the object within the corporeal ground that makes it 'Image Archaeology' ™."
