Trisha Holt Life-size Images Reframed As New Photographs Bridging The Reproduction And The Real

Trisha Holt is a visual artist and photographer interested in the physical properties of the photographic print and the possibilities of its reproduction as a way to address the power of images in contemporary culture. Her images are printed and positioned as life-size, topographical, and site specific installations which are then re-framed in new photographs or experienced as sculptural objects. Holt has shown her work nationally in New York, Detroit, Seattle, and Arkansas among others.
‘Lovechild’ is a series of portraits made by wearing printed images and posing through holes cut into the paper. Holt combines the works of two artists into one. Holt recreates an image from a male photographer’s work, later printing it out and cutting holes for her arms/legs/nose to fit through. She then rephotographs herself in the style of a female photographer.
‘Ripe Lands’ explores identity and media through a series of re-created portraits culled from Pinterest. The original portrait is printed to life-size to be reframed as a new photograph in real space, bridging the reproduction and the real.
