Eugene Palmer

 

In recent years my practice has involved me in a continuous examination of modes of representation related to cultural history and cultural identity. I am interested in the ways in which identity can be constructed. My current examination focuses on archival records, photographs, and contemporary media imagery. Through the traditions of portraiture as document and codes of representation, I have sought to disturb and to some extent test the 'safety' of received notions of paintings' traditions and conventions.
