Momento of Clarity
This exhibition was conceived and planned in entirety from 2017 – 2019.
My working title Momento of Clarity comes from the often-used phrase Moment of Clarity and the word Memento.
The works in the series Momento of Clarity act as an unsettling, humorous metaphor for the confusion and dilemmas of
current times and reflect a post truth world. They present an emotional and social landscape of our contemporary lives.
Elusive and emotive, the images straddle abstraction and figuration, echoing the advents of communications and rationales
rising and reforming only to collide and slump chaotically around us.
Momento refers to the idea of the Lava lamp being a relic or reminder of a specific time in recent history. The Mathmos light
or Lava Lamps invention coincided with the 60s counterculture revolution and the generational shifts in consciousness and
attitudes which accompanied it. I am interested in how this device has been relegated to the past, and exists now as a
novelty kitsch item, albeit with nostalgic allure.
