How Light Carries the Heaviest of Content

Ryllton Viney

February

The element of time grows into an artwork through the layering of materials and processes.
Thus, l hope to explore the idea of time being evident in the work. That is to say, that the fusion of narrative, concept and materials should be obvious and readable, not hidden.
I have always enjoyed the act of making artworks, the process, the manipulation of materials and the scope this provides so long as the process of making relates to the idea of the work rather than supplanting it. The importance of ‘making’ in my work will also be reflected in what amounts to reversing the archaeological and geological process.
Part of my ongoing technique has been to conceal, then reveal – that is to say layering, scraping back, adding again, erasure – until finally a conclusion is presented that offers an opportunity for the viewer to undertake an exploratory ‘excavation’ into the work. The process takes time in the making: thus, the notion of the erosion of time becomes present in both the process and the completed work.
