"Former Mountains" Group show at Salon91 Contemporary Art Collection.
Cape Town, South Africa
A series of linocuts made for "Former Mountains", a group show by Dale Lawrence, Bruce Mackay, Michael Tymbios and Jean de Wet. Found illustrations of unfamiliar and outdated machinery, distorted to conform to my own bias about their intended purpose and then reappropriated to my aesthetic desires, form the subject of the work. Technical drawing provides an empirical and supposedly precise language that, when applied to the generally expressive medium of linocut, comes to reveal its evasion of being known or accurately observed and exposes the distorting effect of ownership as inherent to observation.
