GAIL SKUDERA’s mixed-media collages combine elements of drawing, painting, weaving, printing and construction with photographic portraits from the past. Drawn from a combination of old family albums and anonymous collections of found imagery, Skudera’s portraits are woven together on top of old wallpaper samples. The picture plane becomes a virtual filmstrip, as memories are uniquely embedded and/or woven over, under and back again. Occupying space that is at once ethereal and familiar, spectral figures confront us from a position halfway between memory and materiality. Drawn to the depth of field in vintage black and white photography as well as an increasingly varied arsenal of working methods, Skudera writes, This work comes from a desire to find a moment from the past, or near past, that may have been passed over for holding any particular significance, and finding a deeper meaning in that moment through the expression of the materials.
