A CONVERSATION IN IMAGES
North Wall Arts Centre Oxford
9 May – 27 May 2017
Two artists meet. They are fascinated by each other’s work, despite the lack of obvious visual correspondence. They start a conversation, and discover that the theme of time is a significant point of connection. This exhibition is a continuation of that conversation, expressed through images. Time, they agree, is perhaps the most slippery of the essential concepts. Einstein, the great guru of time, even suggested that it was a fiction: ”… us physicists believe the separation between past, present and future is only an illusion, although a convincing one.”
In his multi-layered prints, Dean Byass interrogates the “moment” and discovers there Einstein’s illusion – not a fluent narrative but a series of discreet fragments that we reconstruct in our minds, to make the world at least seem coherent. In his “paintings with a lens”, Geoff Dunlop presents evidence of layer upon layer of simultaneous timescales, from the instantaneous to the infinitely ancient, all held together in an illusion of the now.
