Sensitive to the politics of contemporary image circulation Tyza Stewart creates self-portraits using processes of visual editing. Including in this exhibition is a new lithograph composed from two images: a photograph of the artist’s body re-drawn with a body found in an online search. This process acts as an area to imagine and project a physical identity, wherein self-image develops through image-making. Erasing the original photographs and without colour, here Stewart creates a singular image developed as another step within this long-running process of shifting self-portraiture.
