TODD HALE

RICHMOND, VIRGINA

This series of mixed media portraits was created by combining elements taken from found sources and personal work which have been manipulated digitally and by traditional drawing techniques. The source material is diverse, ranging from contemporary cartoons and googled images to historical references. Images are put through multiple generations of reproduction in order to further distance them from their original context. For instance a googled image might be printed, then photographed and rearranged and printed again. Final images are printed and combined digitally to arrive at a singular montaged surface. 

This multi-generational process allows me to compose from an infinite palette of ideas and sources. I am interested in the novel and suggestive imagery that collapsing and re-forming unrelated elements produces. Dimensional forms and traces of movement in the pictorial space are often arrived at outside of my intention and later enhanced. 

Along with an emphasis on process, I am interested in exploring the mechanics of human facial recognition.
