"Maisie Marie Alford: Obscured Portraiture"
November 1-December 21,2013
Martin McDonald Gallery
Using a combination of original vintage photographs and found objects, I create two-dimensional and three-dimensional collages that focus on portraiture. Exposing only certain areas of each portrait photograph, allows play between presence and absence, creating repurposed portraits of uncanny and haunting expression, while preserving the essence of the individual.Website
