Drop Shadow explores image non-permanency through the use of liquid acrylic paint on polished perspex, deliberately placing the work in archival jeopardy. The work interacts with the presence of light within the installed environment to cast a drop shadow projection onto the wall. An A5 catalogue accompanies the work tabulating the missing parts from the painting in annotated sketch form. References for the works visual structure include navigational stick charts, injection moulding, arctic ice sheets and manufacturing parts manuals. I am interested in diagrammatic representation and ecological holism. My workflow studies the juxtaposition of analog and digital processes.
Drop Shadow was a finalist in the National Contemporary Art Award in 2015.
