HAMILTON ARTISTS INC – Teri Donovan – Half Life

Co-mingling wallpaper patterns and paint layers, Donovan layers the past with the present to foreshadow a future embedded with forgotten remnants. Old notions, styles, and behaviours, like old wallpaper, are replaced by the new, but are never really gone. In the guise of memory and desire they linger on in a spectral half-life projecting into the future where they emerge to be re-enacted, re-contextualized, and re-interpreted.

Donovan’s work addresses that tenacious desire for life that guarantees the past’s role in the present and the future, and simultaneously suggests how the present secures its own place as it moves towards its inevitable fate.

Exhibition runs until August 14, 2010
