FIONA COCKFIELD – APORIA

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Fiona Cockfield’s ‘Aporia’ opened last night, it is a great show and should not be missed. Fiona spoke beautifully about her work discussing issues to do with space, the void, perception and the banal.

“I can never fully grasp it, hold it, own it – just like a moment in reality, a memory, it never really belongs to me even though it seems I am so close to it. I am too close and thus I am removed.” Fiona Cockfield

The artist statement reads:

Aporia engages ideas of representation and the failures that come about through the literal and conceptual representations seen in art and imagery. This exhibition embraces the idea of failure by utilising painting and photography to direct attention to each medium’s own flaws as representational devices.

For more information and a great interview with the artist see the previous posts about Aporia.
