Remembered Fictions

The negation of the real to present a ‘nothingness’ (Sartre). Absorbed by colour and marks, scratches on a surface. Painting as an ‘otherwise’ and a political expression of human freedom. There is no freedom in a world ‘as it is’ we need alternatives to the moments of ‘now’ in order to imagine and to dream. Painting is not a momento of  time (photograph) but is ‘always present’ as an object or image in the world with whatever meanings and associations its present reading brings (thus is the same image always changing).
