daisy patton's painted faces

Do you ever have vivid dreams where you remember exactly what happened but not who was involved? Daisy Patton’s art is a little bit like that. For her series ‘Forgetting is so long’, she collected anonymous family photographs and painted over them with vivid colour and pattern, obscuring and altering faces like a foggy memory. She describes the altered portraits as “not alive but not quite dead”; a rather curious way to remember important photos long after the people in them have gone.
