THE FLECTIONS/INTO THE DIM
Pencil and graphite on paper, 270x150cm, 2013.. Installation view with 'Into the Dim'
A life played out upon two dimensions and yet experienced in three.
A curious phenomenon effects whoever may enter the Flections. Surfaces are more visible the more reflective or refractive they are to the people who reside there. It is a space made up of many fragmentary planes containing fragmentary people, fragmentary objects and fragmentary happenings all of which is encompassed by a thicket of darkness. So dense is this black air, so tangible, that it could easily be mistaken for a viscose substance not dissimilar to oil. Its people grope around in the darkness, disillusioned and discontent, unable to conceive of anything other. The Flection people have never thought to document their trials, tribulations, customs and practices but so doing will preserve the memory of those lost to its dense, corporeal substance.
