Under a Glisten of Mud

In an endless circle of creation and decay, we assemble our environments with the debris of former times, other places, old ideas. All things are excavated and reused. Imagined shapes and surfaces, collected through ages of seeing, peel off the bottom of our minds. They make their way through the darkness of our bodies, to emerge at our hands. The latent form needs a manifestation. We pry the Earth open to extract the materials. Then we build. Image upon image, drawn from the recesses of memory, we construct the now and pass it on as another iteration of the past, to be dissected and reassembled in the future. 

The exhibition features new works made during the artist's residency at Trykkeriet, a center for contemporary printmaking in Bergen, Norway. They explore different methods of printing and are installed with construction materials found in the surrounding area of Trykkeriet. The title is taken from the poem The Grauballe Man by Seamus Heaney, about a bog body with the same name.
