Exposed to unfixed light sources and seemingly still wet with the immediacy of dirty chemicals, a spread of corresponding prints are moving through time. Their time oscillates between the permanently recorded phantom objects, now married to the surface, and the urgent one-shot process of shadowy conception. Leeks of ghostly light crawled over fertile eggs and armies of seeds enveloping them in washes of cool greys, quartz pinks, and ponds of bleeding burgundies. In the swampy papers is a pregnant pause, a slowing down, an interruption of human time, and the welcoming of elongated geological time.
- Marie Heilich
