medium: photo etching and aquatint Porter is fascinated by the subjects of time and representation, and by the way in which everything--all of reality--ultimately becomes an image or a memory. In this work, Porter has taken a reproduction of René Magritte’s 1964 Surrealist painting, The Great War, and substituted the apple in the painting with a real apple. She then took a photo of the resulting situation, which she used to produce the photo etching seen here. In a humorous reference to art history, Porter calls attention to the nature of reality and representation, encouraging the viewer to examine, question, and deconstruct the process of how she arrived at the work in front of them.
