Blue Chip Representation

Known for combining photography, painting, and sculpture, Sam Falls explores the intersection of color, digital imagery, and natural processes. His painted photographic prints raise questions about perception and how we relate to various media. Mellon, Bartlett Pears (2011), for instance, asks whether an enlarged, two-dimensional photograph of a pear (fruit is one of Falls’ favored subjects), or an imprint made from the fruit itself, “is a more honest representation of a pear?” To produce the image, Falls photographed an arrangement of fruit with a large-format camera, Photoshopped the image, and then stamped the print with paint-covered pears (imprinting the pear’s cross-section as well as its side). “My images are not only investigating the medium’s potential as an art form, but also continue exploring photography’s capacity for representation and challenging its veracity,” Falls explains.
