‘Nearly-Erased’ Series | 2014-2016

Often working with themes of the quotidian from our long and narrow continent, I am seeking to explore the displacement and disappearance which occurs in the wake of rupture; the dissolution of cultural objects as symbols of a culture and time; erasures of artistic markers; and the fading away of the everyday

.
Histories, both real and imagined, are told and re-told; and then become untold, disappeared, and erased. What was once seemingly important, indeed even monumental, slowly dissolves, and then disappears from view, and memory. Erased. Leaving an absence of what went before.
We occupy, and are but a short finger-snap in time, and then disappear, displaced by yet another new appearance.
These erasures, and subsequent disappearances and absences, are a current foci of my praxis.
