Mull creates pictures through a process of rephotographing and altering existing images. The artist’s local newspaper, the Los Angeles Times, serves as the starting point for the body of work featured in the exhibition. Mull makes a picture of the front cover of the newspaper, and at least two photographs that respond to that page, which reveal subtle connections upon close examination. Employing both digital and analog techniques, his resulting images burst with lush color and vibrating patterns, and draw parallels between the radical transformation of photography and print media in the digital age. Mull examines the language and meaning of photography in our increasingly image-saturated world by proposing new ways to imagine its future.
