The Illusion of a Simulacrum (This Image Has Already Been Released)

James Frew


In this work, Frew investigates the idea of original v’s the surrogate, whilst at the same time analysing how we perceive an object: could this work be defined as a painting or a sculpture? (Or both?) The title text This Image Has Already Been Released makes reference to the original painting which has been imitated, whilst also questioning the ubiquity and duplication of images in a Post-Internet discourse. Like a form of three-dimensional printmaking, this work will run in an edition of 10 pieces.
