Reproduction Series: Hierarchical Ladder "Entities"

Reproduction Series: Hierarchical Ladder "Entities", kathryn arnold, acrylic on paper, inkjet print, digital image/computer. 2012

I will be exhibiting a small group of works at the College Art Assciation conference ArtExchange in February, of which these works are a part. Borrowing from Kosuth in presentation – these works contain an acrylic painting on paper, a cmyk inkjet print on photo luster paper, and a digital image displayed on a laptop. The series is titled Reproduction Series: Hierarchical Ladder with these four individual works subtitled “Entities”, “Growth”, “Tally” and “Opening”. The above image shows the view with all three aspects – the ones imaged below lack the digital image on a laptop for the purpose of this blog. This work questions (and brings to light) the way we see, understand and experience things in a digital world – each of these aspects (the physical painting, the cmyk print, the digital image) are viable so how do we differentiate?
