The body remembers, Whitespace Gallery, Auckland NZ

These paintings are a story of physicality or of finding. Using the body’s scaffolding as a starting point to push into abstraction, to break the space between body and world, or skin and atmosphere, to undo the myth that things are separate. I’m interested in how our bodies, like land, hold memories, how land, like skin across bones, holds onto the unfinished conversations of our ancestors, and how that shapes the images we make and how we see.

Many thanks to Rebecca Swan for photographing the work xx
