"“Recollect” - Art by Anita Drieseberg


These pieces are from an ongoing project creating digital paintings on an iPad. I use an obscure and outdated app called “Layers” to manipulate found or donated photos. I spend a great deal of time searching for images that inspire me. The grainier and more worn out the better. I love to bring them back to life with my own slant. I feel sometimes I am almost more of a curator than an artist. Collecting long lost imagery, and reintroducing them to the world. When painting humans, I sometimes remove the heads to make the images more universal. With a head it’s a portrait, without a head it’s anyone and everyone. I’m attracted to images from the 60’s and 70’s. They remind me of my parents. My childhood. I was adopted as an infant in 1966 and as a result have struggled with a bit of an identity crisis. Sometimes feel I have been trying to find myself in the images I am creating. My mother’s shoes. My father’s suit. My auntie’s hairdo. The stewardesses I met that time we went on a plane. The toys and animals I played with. The things I loved as a child and still collect. These images are me trying to recollect things that were mine, and things that never were.

Christopher Lee

(enclosure, encasement, entrapment)
Idea that an individual is contained wholly within either the semen (animalculism) or the egg (ovism) and that as a homunculus it unfolds upon fertilization. Aka Preformation Doctrine.
The root of origin upon thought and cross reference between the action and theory of encasement provide visual contrast. Emotional and philosophical interpersonal conversation. Preservation and the exposure presents the evident existence along with the death of an idea.
Heavily designed imagery and format will expose the contemporary accessibly to the art work giving a platform to deconstruct easily, either subconsciously or consciously.

"Found" Portraits

Based primarily on found vintage images, my "Found" portraits give new meanings and contexts to old images! This body of work in oil and silver metal leaf attempts to find a language that is both ancient and modern- a portraiture for the 21st century. Metal leaf can connote religious iconography, but using silver also refers to early days of photography (silver nitrate) and the "silver screen" of 20th century America.

Move around the room - let the silver pick up the ambient light and reflect it back to you in a magical aura unlike anything you've ever seen. Then stare into the figure's eyes -- as otherworldly as the light around the figure is, the soul of the figure still dominates in an image both vintage and contemporary.

About the Artist

Award winning artist, Paul Morin's portraits are in public and private collections around the world. His portrait of Barack Obama titled “Profile in Hope,” was presented to the president in the Oval Office in 2010. Paul combines a traditional technique with a modern sensibility – images that confront the viewer and with a sense of scale that is very individual.

With empathy and humor, Paul's work celebrates the human spirit and captures the unique look and expression of each sitter - honoring the individual quirkiness that makes each person the human they are! Paul delves into the personality of his subjects much like a candid snapshot reveals the moment-specific projection of a person's inner thoughts. His commissioned portraits bring an immediacy to his subjects revealing an inner life that truly makes the sitter “come alive!”

STAG & MANOR, located at 2327 Market, is a San Francisco-based modern home furnishings and decor shop with a global perspective and a humanitarian spirit; sourcing unique minimalist crafts and arts from all around the world as well as from the local community, and persistently in search of artisans advancing the definitions of modern design while reinterpreting heritage materials and techniques.
