The work is concerned with the folding and flattening of memory and history over time and space. It is influenced by the language of the ruin, the examination of aged objects, desolate landscapes and ruined architecture. In the work I use printmaking, sculpture and installation. Objects may be transformed into new objects through the process of folding, layering and compressing, physically or through the process of print making. A primary concern in the work is the notion of the bog landscape as a repository for cultural memory and histories, within its deep strata. Seamus Heaney’s (1939-2013) bog poems deal with the compression of time in our minds. The landscape exemplifies vast expanses of time, almost outside linear chronologies and the limits of imagination. A tension exists when imagining the bog as both expansive void and restricting vault. The perpetual duality, ambiguities and complexities inherent in the bog landscape dwell more easily in a Third Space (as theorised by Homi K Bhabha and Edward Soja), both real and imagined at once. Opposing elements unite: The known and the unknown; the real and unreal; the living and the dead; the past and the present. Examining this space gives us an opportunity to see through time, recognising the continuous dialogue that exists between the past and the present.
