Throughout history, artists have studied objects using their eyes and technical skills to transfer the objects onto a piece of paper. I have reversed the act by placing the paper on top of the study to form over the cup and create a direct imprint. Paradoxically, the result of this objective physical approach seems imprecise to us; it appears abstract and incomplete when compared to the subjective interpretation of the painter. Seeing is not the neutral act that we traditionally judge it to be, but instead it is a taught skill, one that we learned at an early stage and which plays a part in how we understand everything around us today.
