Impossible Shadow #36
Medium: industrial flashing tape on board, painted
Impossible Shadow #36 is part of an ongoing exploration into shadows, in particular shadows of sculptural works I have created in the past. This work considers the shadow as an ephemeral print, capturing a moment in time. Cubes have been a recurring form in my sculptural practice – this work takes a cube that is then covered with industrial flashing tape. The tape is repetitively pressed and moulded over the cube to create an embossed effect, simultaneously covering and revealing, then the cube form is removed. The work becomes both a memory and a record of a work that came before.
