"This piece is part of a series of work using oil paint, marble dust, distressed polaroids and glue on canvas, and is about lost spaces. In the same way that we create gaps in our landscapes, our memories also shift with time. I wanted to explore what happens when one tries to break down the boundaries between representation and perception. A captured moment begins to fragment, images deteriorate, memory fades. Can we really hold on to the past or do the effects of time, both material and emotional, mean we have to accept that things keep moving, even when they are still." AB
