Figment

Catherine White

UV print on aluminium

2020

12 x 36 in.

My current works intend to spark a memory through visual cues. I experiment with digital printing techniques to explore the process of memory.

Figment represents a prologue to my life.  A found roll of un-developed film from my late father produced a series of portraits of family and friends, including himself and my mother before I was born. The piece shows an imagined moment of time between the two of them, with a central space allowing the viewer to create a sort of triptych or triple portrait.  The haze on the polished aluminium distorts the image by creating a barrier between the present and the past, that evokes transience and impermanence of memory.
