This painting has become know to me as 'The Hungary Jacks Painting'. It was in my last exhibition but i never got around to photographing it.
The painting comes from a photo taken at the top of the Queen Street Mall in brisbane outside Hungary Jacks.
The relationship between photography and painting has a history of exploring ideas of how representation and perception are created. The attitude and ideas implied through this relationship pose some interesting questions, i.e. what does a photograph represent and how does this representation exist with a painting? What happens during this process of change? How is the finished work linked to and removed from the moment in time, which it was originally taken from?
