Traces Remain & Venice: Into Dreams
by Gallery Tosei
Location: Gallery Tosei
Artist(s): Geoff CHAPLIN
Date: 5 Sep - 27 Sep 2014

Traces Remain” asks the question “what counts as survival?” – is it our body, our personality, our thoughts? Or is it the things we make – concrete (for example buildings) or abstract (language, music, science)? Or, indeed, does human survival in any form matter? The series begins at personal level and looks back through former generations and human development before returning to more modern times and our legacy. Largely pinhole imagery is drawn from around the world and is presented as pigment prints, cyanotype and gum prints. The title is inspired by a recent book by Charles Nicholl and classical music by Colin Matthews.

The “Venice into Dreams” series reflects the visual images I see when falling asleep – passing from relatively clear and distinct to increasingly abstract and illogical, and is accompanied by quotes from Shakespeare and Lewis Carrol.
