The spiral-bound risograph prints featured in Luke Barber-Smith’s “MASKS” capture a series of screenshots that were collected over the course of 6 years. Revealing pixelated abstractions imperceptible in standard RGB or CMYK formats, each image was a revelation to the artist, coming to light only after he had completed layering an image file, then isolated it and viewed the grayscale in Photoshop.
Composed of 50 images, this selection summarizes the artists use of traditional photography with drawing and painting; each individually printed book includes an engraved USB drive that holds a 117mb digital negative file (DNG) made by Barber-Smith in 2016. The image is capable of being reproduced on surfaces of up to 40 inches and can take on a variety of media; traditional chromogenic print, inkjet, canvas, or other applicable substrates.
