Everything is waiting. Waiting to be perceived, acknowledged, recognised or remembered. Drawn into some vortex of consumption to be captured, photographed, printed, uploaded and downloaded. Our experience of the world is deeply rooted in a global obsession with reproduced and digital images.
These works are a conversation between remembering and experiencing. The subject matter is consumed, manipulated and reconstructed. The works are less an authentic likeness and more the product of a creative process borne out of experiencing the world through a 2D lens. A working method performed to mimic more mechanical modes of image reproduction, with the end result being a flattened, smooth and featureless surface.
Exhibition open: 6-8pm Friday 22 March 2019
Join the artist for a talk 4pm Saturday 23 March.
