About this artwork

Roe Ethridge’s practice reflects a variety of approaches to photography, exploiting the possibilities of the genre both formally and conceptually. Moving easily between art and advertising, the artist incorporates images from a commercial context into his works, thus diffusing the boundary between high and low forms of representation. Ethridge works in series and simultaneously creates one-offs, including travel pictures and images from commercial jobs, identifying and placing together unlike photographs that become their own groups by virtue of his selection. When shown with other intimate close-up “portraits,” this building facade (originally part of an illustration for a magazine article about artist Richard Prince’s move to upstate New York) exemplifies Ethridge’s process of editing and assembling disparate imagery to form complex, interchangeable relationships
