Our latest installation is the work of Susie Elliott, Castlemaine artist and Wide Open Road Art curator. In Exploded moment (2017) she continues her exploration of themes of attachment; to materials, to processes, and, in this case, to moments.
The rough sketch, like the fallible grasp of a memory, is overlayed with the lingering investment of time and energy, as small clay balls, hand-rolled and dyed in inks, create the next layer. Over this is a translucent sheet, pressed against the glass, synthetic, dyed, drawn on, and stitched. The work pursues the sensory absorption we experience in certain moments, their momentousness (for us at least), despite often being mundane.
