Paul Sietsema

This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

Sietsema's drawings and films reveal a forensic archaeological interest in the materiality of objects and images combined with a more conceptualised concern with the legacies of past eras of art history, the process of image making, and the contextualisation of artefacts.

A photo-perfect diptych drawing of an old photograph of a schooner at sea, Ship Drawing 2009, faithfully reproduces in ink on paper both sides of the photographic image, including every dent, rip and aged yellow mark. In other works such as Figure 3 2008, Sietsema uses film as another means in which to allow the representation of an object to be both material and image.

Sietsema addresses the very act of looking through an interrogation of form and image production.

The exhibition will include new work made during 2012, including a suite of four 'Calender boat' drawings together with works on canvas and a new film.
