Paco Pomet: Phototruth

At first glance, Paco Pomet's work consists of old-timey photographs, altered and twisted in a dark quiet humor. But upon closer look, the quirks and aberrations inherent in old photos, reveal themselves actually to be the layered paint and smeared brush strokes of an oil painting, which is Paco's medium.  This aesthetic double-take speaks to his subject matter:  Impossible imagery portrayed within a history that is deep-rooted in what we know to feel true.
