Stu Oxley

“The images in this exhibition reference sketchbook drawings which evolved from a sense of place or a memory of place. In some ways the images become distant and intuitive recollections. The initial act of drawing, combined with the digital process and the print medium, creates an imprint of the actual memory. The process of creating the image reflects the way memory struggles for clarity. Although there are specific signifiers, as distant as they may be, it seems to be the emotive memory that is the stimulus. The forgetfulness caused by the traffic of time and experience is a further source of inspiration. These tracings of memory of past and present suggest movement towards a more subconscious voice. ”
