Nanopresent

2012-2014

 

In this series my works dwell on the moment when we are leaving the past and entering the future. I have used the side mirror,and at times the front mirror as tools to explore time within space.

This slice of time that we call the present is experienced only as transition.To me, the mirror gives us the receding glimpse of the past, and over its forward rim presents us with the comings ahead. this - nanopresent,-(a word coined by me) is the time in which the departing images have reflected from the mirror and meet our eye, a distance of about a foot, taking one billionth of a second (nanosecond). this interval is the present, which mediates the past as one moves into the future.
My work-In the Nanopresent- is mostly acrylic on canvas, with small sets of pencil drawings on paper and digitally created works available in prints.
