It seems to be the case that when photography and painting become entangled, one becoming both a copy and a commentary upon the other, then a series of complex discursive issues get put into play. The photograph always seems to be in excess of the painting, engaging with it performatively, whilst painting is posed in these forms of contemporary practice, not as a single point of reference, to be mimicked or copied, but as a discursive presence troubling the security of the photographic image, producing a differentiated space of representation that opens up a more complex articulation of the way in which photography intersects with the field of the visible.
