From its birth as a new technology, photography has been both a documentary medium and an unreliable narrator. Through editing with paint, collage, darkroom, and creatively destructive processes, Ross Carlisle, Elise P. Church, Tasha Doremus, and Rachel Guardiola use photography as a starting point for the creation of evocative, implausible scenes.     

 

 

 

Ross Carlisle’s source materials are the most algorithmically appealing landscapes available via Google Earth. He paints monolithic monuments imposingly erected in the middle of places where clearly they do not belong. The monoliths serve as a metaphor both for our blocked ability to view reality and the human compulsion to claim all territory as our own.
