Subterfuge

I am currently working on a new body of work that hearken back to my pursued interest in movement, temporality, presence and absence, and space. Venturing into a new territory. I began photographing bare interior spaces (gallery walls, domestic interiors, bare walls) in Toronto and continued this work in Newfoundland. Printing these photos into a 30 x 40-inch format, I then draw and paint with ink and gouache on the print, to toy with perception and spatiality. The result is confounding. These works read simultaneously as reproductions of site-specific wall work and painting on paper; they are situated between matter and space. The work questions what is true and what is not; what is digitally rendered and what is manually added. This approach to art-making speaks to my on-site practice of producing site-specific wall work.
