Jahnne Pasco-White’s expanded painting practice considers the intersections between materiality and temporality. Her work is characterised by the labouring of delicate supports. She is interested in the layers of authorship that are variously evidenced and concealed by the artist’s mark-making, as well as their continual processes of decay and renewal.
For the artist, to think and act ecologically implies an interconnectedness, in one form or another. Donna Haraway maps the implications of such interconnectedness as “becoming-with”, such that human-nature separation is refashioned as a myriad of bodily connections. Timothy Morton prefers “the mesh”. More concretely, the late Deborah Bird Rose emphasised instead “embodied knots of multispecies time”, which brings us closer to ecological processes of decay and renewal.
