Description
Summary:This studio-based project explores ideas of stability and instability through a series of artworks utilising processes from painting and photographic disciplines. It specifically explores imagery that has an embedded sense of instability or potential breakdown. The project refers to events as opposed to objects, places or states. Deleuze defines events as 'between' or at the border of things and language, and it is this border that is the productive site where the images and ideas accumulate in the project. Two sets of related works exploit processed images of accidents and surveillance X-rays. Images of accidents have an obvious entropic reference, and surveillance X-rays function as the predictors of instability. Within the works there is a mimicking process across painted and photographic surfaces creating an uncertainty of the nature and function of these disciplines. The thesis exhibition, Stable and Unstable Events, explores layers of dialogue between the continuous and the discontinuous, the photographic image and abstraction, the accidental and the constructed.
