Description by Tricia Gillman
My aim is to record fleeting experience, documenting as directly as possible, our conscious awareness, as each present moment emerges, focuses and melts away. The space of the painting becomes a mapping site, the raw canvas accruing evidence, like the way a tablecloth, a sheet, or a wall collects stains, or the skin we live in rides its years. As the works evolve, they construct and deconstruct themselves, mirroring the emergence and the dissolving of thoughts, feelings and sensations as they unfold simultaneously within the mind and the container of the medium. The slow and generous act of looking negotiates this intimacy of consciousness.
