This is a project of independent subject matter. It is based on images of my family jumping into lakes and pools. I have these images in abundance, as swimming is a big bonding and fun activity that my family looks forward to all year. I want to explore the tangibility of a moment, of a photograph, and how that in many ways contradicts something as permanent as painting.
