Abstract / Summary

ART & LIFE, TATE ST.IVES
The Last Portrait addresses grief, mourning and melancholia as perpetual state of searching. Searching for what has been lost. I find it a heightened psychic state that seeks particular spaces to find expression. Much of my work as an artist is drawn from the metaphor of working with the unfathomable depth of dark places such as black holes, the Hadal zone in the ocean and an ancient well in a Jack Perry’s (1990-2006) memorial garden in Lamorna. This presentation will focus on the space within an image titled The Last Portrait that opens up as a portal into another dimension. I will discuss this image as Hyperobject in relation Timothy Morton theory on the unfathomable space that inconceivable objects and events can give way to.
