Painted Photographs features 10 tiny photo-paint hybrids by Chrissy Welzen. Welzen paints atop photographs, but smartly shows her talent by masking off thin pieces of the photos, then removing the tape to expose the image beneath. This glimpse reveals how the photo-real world varies for each of us when filtered through our private takes on reality. Her work results in miniature mythic scenes of glowing air and trembling leaves, paired with firm structures of branches, hills, or houses.
