This artist’s book questions the status of the image in the digital era through a reinterpretation of a classical subject in art history: flowers and the female figure. Images of flowers and women are associated with backgrounds of a city landscape, including photographs of the Capitol Records building in LA.
In this book, which is part of a larger body of work started in 2016, Parker Ito manipulates images that he has taken himself, by superimposing, reframing, deconstructing them, and at times even altering them. He questions the status of image in this digital era and the different modes of representation, and tackles this in a relevant manner through his study of a classical subject in art history: flowers to which is added the female figure. Flowers and the female figure contrast with one another, against the background of a telescoped visual of the city, which suggests the end of the image in its singular form, until its very own dissolution, physically perceptible.
