Paul Anthony Smith's Picotage

Paul Anthony Smith's Pictotages at ZieherSmith are photographs that have essentially been picked apart. Using a ceramic tool, Smith flicks up small pieces of the image exposing the white of the paper to form masks over his figures. The paper remains attached to the surface (see the detail) and creates a jewel like texture to the mask.
