About the print
“I watched the trees above for hours. I don’t remember now what type just that they were leafless and that the sky became like a fresh white sheet. ”
Memories flicker like dreams.
Cut scene and cello taped together at 6 frames per second.
The past redacts to a single broken landscape.
Whether an unarticulated trauma or a beloved memory our remembrances when retold are non temporal. Forced into linear narratives forms rupture. Grasped like a favourite tea cup, smashed and glued crudely back together we hold a jigsaw that will never be reconciled. Maybe it was never as whole as we think it must have once been anyway.
Through a cut and paste of my own photographs that decay constantly with each repeated zeroxed utterance, the past present and future become a jerking interrupted rhythm. In this the interludes are as significant as the activity. These screen prints are fractured after images that find a space that can exist without possibility of totality.
