Collett Hudecek

“Blurred Memories”       Opening  Fri. Jan. 6,  6-9pm

Blurred Memories is a body of work that Hudecek likes to equate to the inverse of photorealism. Instead of creating a painting to reproduce a photograph, she creates a photograph to imitate a painting. These photographs are made to resemble a painting in which crisp details and sharp focus have been disregarded to evoke a faded memory in a single frame. Memories can often be tricky and imprecise.  These images are reminiscent of a distant memory in which the intimate details have long faded in time, but the emotion fueling the memory remains unforgettable. She disposes of the details the way our faded memories tend to forget specifics. The colors, shapes, and shadows mold into an image capable of inducing the emotions attached to these distant memories. The lack of focus creates broad strokes of color and light while capturing recognizable gestures and scenes of familiar images.
