Artist Gini Holmes
Shasta Lake, California USA
Years ago, I was given a box of glass negatives by a friend who was cleaning his garage. I let these negatives sit for years until I approached the local Historical Society about donating them. While scanning the negatives, I began recognizing locations and noting facial resemblances in the portraits. Though the images turned out to be of no interest to the local Historical Society, they endeared themselves to me. I began integrating them into digital manipulations of my own snapshots. Lately, my interpretations of these images have become more intimate – as well as my process. I am now working on the individual images, creating a new series of inkjet transfer monoprints on handmade paper (my own) and adding embroidery/beading. COWBOY JUNKIE is part of this new series.
