In Time between Saida and Sur | 2010
Mono Screen Print on Paper. 68 x 99 cm (framed).
The series of mono (screen) prints, 'Between Saida and Sur', address visual and temporal image construction by examining edges, peripheral landscape views and movement, as modes of framing an image. The work plays with the idea of a snapshot, an automatic image, that has the potential to hold a kind of stillness or pause, that contradicts its own origin.
'In Time (Between Saida and Sur)', also deals with the notion of fragile images that reveal their physical matter through their failure to convey the representational world
accurately; The movement that blurs the photo, making it unrecognizable, also
foregrounds the actual paint, color layers and pixels, and the work reveals its own image construction and mediation(hand and screen) through its material components, as the view(s) blend and disintegrate.
