"“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 I use an obscure and outdated app called “Layers” to manipulate found or donated photos.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.

POST NO BILLS
(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.
