Silent Departure, 2015-2016 – Sharleen King
Acrylic and mono prints on board / 90 x 60 x 6.5 cm
Layers of organic mono prints derived from plants and natural dyes, are mounted upon a rigid board. Despite this strong support and futile attempts at preservation, these layers become increasingly fragile and degraded, eventually leaving only an empty space. The marks and pigments left upon the papers remain, like precious memories, as the only evidence of their existence.
