Monument

Stern Studio | Vienna, Austria | 2011

Adopting an ethnographic approach this series of 24 paintings, on un-stretched linen, conflate forgotten histories with a contemporary sense of belonging. These visualise an experienced and fictional landscape; the particularity of the locale is embedded in cultural beliefs and thus reflected in this series. Monument is a characterisation of something physical, a shrine that is fluid, a space and subjective place for navigating potentiality of the local narratives of identity, history, politics and economy together emphasising a unique and particular position.
