What I make
I make art about the things right in front of me. This website was inspired by the letter Y. My name begins and ends with it. ('The end and the beginning where always the same before the beginning and after the end.’ ) The letter traditionally regarded as a consonant but more commonly used as a vowel. The photo (actually a still from a video) made in 2006. The inspiration for it came from nightly visits to my late father in hospital during the final months of his life.( at this point I hadn't seen him in many years). On these evenings the past seemed very present - dropping out of the present into memory made the walk along the corridor seem like an eternity. So, it's a piece about time and memory and meaning. The stories we tell ourselves to hold our lives together.
In this case using the thing that is visible to show the thing that is invisible.
