Painting: Oil, Video on Plastic, Steel.
The technical focus of my current practice revolves around verre églomisé, or reverse glass painting. The interest in the process arose from a desire to release painting from its traditional two-dimensional limitations. In my research, I found that media such as music and video are said to occupy the fourth dimension as they are time-based. In this work, I set out to create a painting that could occupy the fourth dimension. The bride is an archetype associated with nostalgia and longing, particularly in a gothic context, and seemed appropriate in the pursuit of capturing past, present and future in one work.
The video figure walks in reverse and slow motion until it assimilates with the painted figure (which sits over the video screen).
