How do we understand the active interchange between the outer face of an artwork and its inward-facing components, be these a design, a trace or a generating framework?
Over the course of the PhD enquiry I aim to interrogate physically through the making of artworks and theoretically, through a contextual underpinning, the depth of surface as a dense, complex and vacillating plane. The research aims to unpick the interplay between the outer public layer and the structure below, contributing to a new understanding of the picture plane within two dimensional Fine Art practice.
My study is one concerned with the elements which make up the archival records of a performative, temporal practice. Using the theory of trace, as defined by Paul Ricoeur, I explore the shifting and fleeting nature of the artefacts produced through my work.
