If Only (glitter edition)2022
Silk screen mono print is a reproduction – simulacrum that is intended to erase and replace original gestural marks and in doing so the artist’s hand.
Here, decorations connotations to beauty and desirability are employed to articulate a tension that resides at the heart of our exchange – that we cannot find meaning in things and people who cannot hope to provide either.
In this sense the work might be seen as a critique of the mysticism around fine art and the role of the artist as a material and sensual service provider.
Distilled to its core the work is an articulation of regret. The gestural floral composition is representative of an ideal – contained and just out of reach.
