Following on from the success of her first solo exhibition, Alcaston Gallery is proud to present new works on paper and film by Dena Ashbolt, Witnessing Time from July 30th to August 30th, 2013.
Observing the diminishing life force of a bunch of tulips, Dena Ashbolt uses photographic stills to freeze the delicate motion found in their decay. Through the mediums of photography and video, Dena Ashbolt meditates on the way the fleeting presence of these flowers mirrors her own sense of time passing. Here the artist describes the poetic possibilities of this binary of motion and stillness in her work.
