Cutbacks - layby
digital collage on watercolour paper with cutout.
Cutback. Cutaway. Cut into the remaining fragments, leaving something incomplete. What remains is present in part but also absent in some sense. Bringing these fragments together is an attempt to reconcile the pieces into a dysfunctional wholeness. But now I have started to accept that sometimes all I can do is to respond to the unbridgeable distances of printed images and photographs severed from their origins. These are stand-ins for incremental reversals of presence and changes of fortune that are flattened with all the anecdotal evidence deleted as we try to escape into other realms.
