Sara Cwynar re-presents and remakes existing images to examine nostalgia, kitsch, the stoking of consumer desire, and the ways photographs circulate in altered form. Employing interventions such as collage and re-photography of vernacular and commercial source images, she produces intricate tableaux that reveal how the visual strategies of popular images infiltrate our consciousness. Among her key works are sculptural constructions that are photographed, printed, tiled, and re-photographed; images taken from darkroom manuals that are deconstructed using a scanner; and stock photographs that are collaged by hand and then re-photographed.
