Summary
The fear of being forgotten provokes the human race to obtain illusions of immortality. Immortality is sought through the establishment of cultural legacy, granting the opportunity to exist beyond death. After one dies the body is consigned to a grave, their name continues to be recycled in the purgatory that cultural legacy provides. In this project the museum is the artist's purgatory. An artist's cultural legacy is obtained through the embrace of the museum during his/her life. It is here that their name and work recycles, granting them immortality. This body of work explores presence/absence, materiality/illusion and handedness/unhandedness and how they relate to cultural legacy. It establishes a central location between binary oppositions. It is in this central location between binary oppositions that I struggle with how to make a mark, be remembered and establish a legacy with a skillset directed at removing the hand. Navigating between the characteristics of Minimal Art and Trompe l'oeil painting, the work is neither completely material nor illusionary. The inability to reduce the work to either materiality or illusion creates a liminal state in which to contemplate the illusion of immortality. Through the veil of temporal materials, we peer through to the undefined. The work is presented in a state of permanent impermanence where the only constant is change
