INSTALLATION VIEW of Loss and it's Remains (2019) in the Unisa Art Gallery
Loss and its Remains included five artworks. Influenced by personal loss and Kristeva’s  writing on despair and sorrow, I evoke the relationship of loss and its tangible fragments. The research embraced the technically diverse, unified under a sub-theme of the fold. The use of folds, relative to specific sites, was a deliberate conceptual and structural device. Aligned with the broader theme of affect and complexity, I drew on Deleuze’s  writings on the fold and how thought is enfolded within itself. The recurrent motif of the fold was applied as a conceptual and structural tool.
The Unisa Art Gallery installation was curated to read from left to right, unfolding in three sections:
On the left, occupying a focal position was the large oil painting, Folds: Assumed Abundance, the mid-section comprised of a series on Dams - an oil painting titled Dullstroom Dam and two ink drawings: New dams from the old and Record of Pangbourne; and on the right hand side, four photographs called Speak tenderly to my beloved I-IV.
