European Picture, a neo-romantic delay, a field of particles


 

 2010, color, silent, 4:15, edition of 5

in this neo-futurist picture fragmentary scenes appear as glimpses of an uncontainable geophysical narrative; an accumulation of human habit becoming incorporated into the unknown. Drawing from images related to the 2010 Eyjafjallajökull volcanic eruption, this work is part of a larger investigation of the figure of the nomad and its many contemporary manifestations. The visibly crafted aesthetic brings together cinematic language with tactile painting-like event, attempting to call the viewer into presence.
