Laguna

A series of eight paintings entitled ‘Laguna’, that were intended to shimmer and oscillate in space that’s hard to pin down. They are the colourful reflections on equidistant ripples in the lagoon of Venice that are cropped to disguise their source; they are the signals of dead analogue tv screens that flicker into the night as we sleep in front of them. They are something and nothing, neither sea nor land. They represent those in-between, liminal states we sometimes find ourselves in; between adult and parent, between countries and cultures, or different lovers…Lacuna and laguna, one temporal, one physical.

They were made from the rearranged cut strips of large painting I made in Omaha, and they are permanently mounted on chamfered marine ply, so they hang like flat screen tv’s. All works are mixed media.
