Artist Statement

Randy Grskovic uses various types of photographic production to investigate the fixed image. Grskovic disrupts the fixed image by distorting found images to create new ones. For the past 3 years Grskovic has been collecting vintage negatives from Ebay, sold as “collectibles” along with other kitsch objects. For him, the film is a 3 dimensional transparent object to alter. Through traditional black and white darkroom printing Grskovic extracts the collaged negatives into a positive on the paper. His interest lies in the interruption of photographic tropes to challenge our understanding of historic composition and content.
