The Transience collection de-materialised the human form from the physical to the metaphysical in a search for understanding of ephemerality. Using my own body as a vessel, I have translated the figure to complete abstraction, dissolving the form into its essence.
From performative recorded film to long exposure photography to abstracted paintings, the form has been distilled into motion and marks. It begins with the physical captured by photographic means, translated through long exposure photography into marks and gestures. Those gestures are then further dissolved into painterly layers of oil on the surface. The result suggests the ephemeral and transient nature of existence.
