In Paperscapes, a series of photographs of pieces of paper on white paper, I would like to bring the viewer’s attention to the discrepancy between reality and artifice. Employing the ideas of trompe-l’oil, I am interested in the threshold between the real and the false, and the moment at which the two become interchangeable. These photographs and drawings are of ordinary, commonplace, and familiar objects, bringing the viewer’s attention to the neutrality of a piece of paper, as well as its potential.
