How do people describe time?
Each man-made replica departs from its paradigm through subtle, unexpected deviations.
In my practice, print is used as a way of recording and transmitting perception by using it in an unconventional sense. The crumbly variations that appear in each reproduction of different media and materials reveal the nature of repetition and the traces of time. Each piece stretches past over time, but each has its own unique variation within it.
George Kubler's book has greatly influenced my understanding of the concept of time and this translates into my image making. The shape of time is a concept that people perceive differently in different moments, circumstances and contexts. In the same way, in a free, unconscious process, I record the traces of time passing.This is a process that is both abstract and subtle, reproduced in the form of etchingprint, photography and books.
In George Kubler’s book The Shape of Time, time is like space, is given shape by the things that fill it. In the case of art history, Kubler speaks of how ‘the process of reproduction throughout history actually prolongs the stability of many past moments, however, this stability is not perfect.
