Fragments 1998-1999

Fragments is a series which departs from linear narrative to imply history through surface qualities and the interaction between the painted "fragments'. Using a combination of acrylics, oils and pumice medium I worked to create interactive layers of image and ambiguity, which mimic the decomposing surface of ancient structures. Each 'fragmented' gesture reveals the history of its making, the fragility of its construction and its dependence for interpretation on a greater context which can only be supplied by the viewer.
