Ab-out and Y nots
Finally latent images beckoned their ghostly presence slowly rising to the surface until the tip of the film reached the back of his mind. He could no longer resist and summoned the chiaroscuro from the translucent depth. Hence, the memories of a particular event emerged to reclaim reality far beyond his control and outside his knowledge. What he saw through the lens was ever hardly what he saw in the picture. None of these moments were fragmented, on the contrary, they were exponential and extrapolated junctions like crossroads seen in fast forward motion; on the other hand each was complete in themselves, each a cell containing the code of synchronicity….meaningful coincidence. Photography he thought enabled this uncanny alliance between alchemy and quantum physics, flirting with back holes, worm holes and white holes as the dramatic tension was released while the gaze having reached its apparent target turned inward like a boomerang interlocked with a prey that will resist arrest and consumption and continue its journey beyond the caller.

The concern of this curator is to continue gathering and engaging the artists who in their practice can answer the questions alluded to in the brief and widen the general concept through their personal interpretation. The intention is to broaden the view point already offered by inviting more artists as well as organizing a mutable relationship between them , allowing an exchange of participants at a later date, thus allowing the idea to develop organically, and proposing the project to new alternative venues with a fresh outlook. The feed back from audience and artists, curators and potential buyers will promote the growth of new answers and inspire new directions and developments thus ensuring the idea will take unsuspected shapes as it progresses through time and space.
The concern of this writer is to deconstruct the conventional myth of progress.
The concern of this artist …to dissolve the illusion of visual mundanity.
