David Maisel | San Francisco

David Maisel, History’s Shadow GM12, 2010, Archival Pigment Prints, 40" x 30", Ed. of 7 David Maisel, History’s Shadow AB1, 2010, C-print, 40" x 30", Ed. of 7

Through the x-ray, the artworks of origin become de-familiarized and de-contextualized, yet acutely alive and renewed. Culled from archives and re-photographed by the artist, the spectral qualities of these renderings are like transmissions from the distant past, conveying messages across time. -David Maisel
