Evidentiary Realism – Revealing the aesthetics of investigation

Realism is a complicated thing. The term conjures the notion that a work attempts a level of representation that makes a legitimate effort to accurately reflect its subject. Yet, one can be confronted with a realistic portrait of an individual, a space or a landscape and continuously scrutinize all the inherent biases involved in its creation until there is nothing left to consider objective. How a thing is represented affects how objectively it is received, thrusting its presumed real-ness into question. None of this is controversial. Indeed, they are truisms of any creative practice or act of art appreciation.
