Oldification. Now, there’s a word for you. That’s what Dave Barnes says he does to his images to make them seem from another era. His works is primarily nostalgic images that seem to have been partially destroyed by a combination of time, a demonic graffiti artist, and being left in a cupboard with a ton of other random pieces of paper and a tipped can of shellac.
It’s tough to imagine these pics on your livingroom wall. That is, if you live in a real house. Maybe if your ‘house’ is a slick post modern Manhattan highrise apartment these pics will pop. Anyway, love ’em. They look like they were a lot of fun to make.
