Blurred portraits by Geneva-based artist Eliana Marinari. Like an image that fails to load fully, “Recognition Memory” mimics the discomfort of distorted or inaccessible memories through a series of ink and pastel drawings, glazed over with layers of aerosol paint.
“The series explores the process of creating a visual representation of an image in our mind, which is matched in our memory to attribute meaning. These hazy portraits challenge the viewer, as the process of face recognition becomes more difficult, semantic associations become more important.”
