Exhibition: Bring to Light, installation shots
This series involves the burning away of shadow until all that remains are vacant forms left behind through the repetitive scarring process utilized in my printmaking. These shapes speak to the obsession that is bred by the repetitive nature until they are reduced to the very minimal. The remnants are two dimensional, but the process that creates them is entirely sculptural, and from there I rework these specters of process back into a sculptural object.
Stemmed from a fear of forgetting, I imagined my mind as rich dark expanse that I then began to burn away at the centre, creating a light and a vacancy at the same time. It is a mixture of the experience of a memory like a flash and the forgetting a memory.
