ARTISTS EXPOSED

On the occasion of the Festival Photo Saint Germain des Prés , the galleries Le Minotaure and Dina Vierny join their forces to present the work of the artist Nina Mushinsky.

"I can say now that in the past I thought of painting and photography in a hierarchy, even though photography was and still is an integral part of my painting process.
I thought of the photograph as an inferior, almost throwaway, object, and painting as something in which there are big investments, leading to monumentality and permanence.

I no longer feel I have to make that differentiation or choice. A long time ago an acquaintance said, during a "studio visit", "Either fall out of love with the photograph (as a painter), or become a photographer!". No way!! I am head over heels in love with photographs as objects, even as other people's garbage that I find in the darkroom. When I paint I am not only creating from my interest in the subject, but responding to the physical surface and all the associations it elicits, of the photograph, the malleable object, which I hold in my left hand."
