‘A Synthetic Model for a Post-Capitalist Economy in a Parallel Universe’ National Eisteddfod of Wales, The Senedd Welsh Assembly Cardiff 2018
MetadataShow full item record
A painting/installation that considers art as a synthetic communicator and transmitter of experience reflecting the uncertainty of human-historical time and place. The work draws upon the materiality of the built environment and its abstract displacement through art as a memory of forms re-imagined as a parallel universe. In proposing a simulacrum I wish to question our received notion of authenticity in a world constructed through capitalist neo-liberalism, and imperial economies of power that contribute to the exploitation of national/cultural/religious and post-colonial identities. The ambition is for work that may create a sense of recognition counterbalanced by a sense of timelessness, loss, longing, disconnection and melancholy. In so doing I wish to make artworks that seem to arrive as if from another time and place; a potential dissident space where all era’s co-exist.
