Jennifer Mehigan’s ‘Armed/Luminous’ series

Jennifer Mehigan‘s  Armed/Luminous series (2010) mixes paint with found imagery to explore the hidden beauty of fire. The Sydney-based artist’s use of bright brushstrokes undermines the scenes of terror behind by destroying the image  in both material and metaphorical terms, with a clear parallel to Gerhard Richter‘s Overpainted series.
