Phantasmagoria – non place of desire, at Glasgow School of Art Graduate Degree show

Phantasmagoria, non place of desire,
is my final work for the MLitt (Masters of Letters) Fine Art Practice in Painting at Glasgow School of Art.

Phantasmagoria, non-place of desire explores the irreversible dynamic of time and our attempts to find fixity. How does our experience of time form our memories, our identity? How do the places we inhabit help to conjure our dreams? Phantasmagoria is collected icons of transience which map our relationship with time, space and memory.

 “Ambiguity is the appearance of dialectic in images, the law of dialectic at a standstill. This standstill is utopia and the dialectical image … dream image”
– Walter Benjamin, The Arcades Project
