Building site..........

The following works are all made with a mixture of acrylic on wood prepared with a sanded gesso base with Indian ink and text using gel medium transfer technique. Like the oil on wood paintings in the fugitive image series they explore the landscape of desire and loss, evoking memory and history through fragments of forgotten photographs and torn pages of art history books in the shallow illusionist surface of still-life trompe l' oeil. However they remain unresolved for the time being. Hopefully I will be able to return to them with a fresh eye in the near future.
