ASCENSION: BETWEEN TIME & SPACE (2014)
The title refers to the moment a mist of spray paint travels through the air before coming to rest on the canvas, an analogy for the spirit leaving the body. By presenting the installation side on, I am inviting the viewer to walk between the sheets of frost cloth to experience the liminal space between the paint and the “canvas”. From the front, viewers may perceive the painting as a bewildering trompe l’oeil of shadowy creases. However, the illusion of spatial depth is disrupted by the real time participation of others as they pass “behind the veil”, in so doing, becoming part of the artwork.
