And Repeat to Fade
This installation is a collage of the many surfaces and textures of sections of the distressed walls in Caroline Gardens Chapel. Painted canvas, plasterboard, found acrylic sheets, photographs printed on paper, vinyl and wooden boards are layered over one another. Many individual compositions are bought together and displayed in a central cluster, exploding and fracturing outwards. Layered textured surfaces showing degradation and the passing of time explore our emotional connection to places of shared memory, and the atmosphere created by this hidden and revealed history. The works also become a record of the time that has eroded these surfaces and reveal the domestic, un-fantastic banality of everyday existence. There is a poetic profundity to this erosion which speaks of metaphor and loss.
