|PDF (Sawtooth ARI Annul Fundraiser Exhibition Catalogue)|
In our travels, we capture images of landscapes we’ve visited. They are mostly captured through what we see but often we create physical representations of the landscape that enable us to share, to keep or to remind.
Through this process, no matter the medium, we strip, sanitise and clean the landscape of all that has been before and relate the scene, the place, to our moment of engagement.
This new work is a physical representation that empties the landscape of all that was there before it and what will come after, capturing a form as it meets the sky. The form captures a moment of awe and embodies no detail but that of the medium which it is made and applied to its form. The detail is added based on the viewer’s perception of and experience with it. The work is charged with evoking a stronger response from those who have engaged with the place rather than just its visual representation.
It is encased, even protected, from change and interference. A souvenir that can be taken with us when we leave, a memento we can share, the experience of this place we visited can be kept safe forever.
