Our minds process events differently over time. The things we hold onto in our memory shift from where they begin, watering down facts and dissolving sequence. They alter, making more vivid what our subconscious determines important - regardless of its factual accuracy or perceived necessity. Perhaps the subconscious is dishonest. Or perhaps it is clairvoyant; displaying what information is gained about an object, person, location or event through means other than the five senses. This line of thinking renders intuition both urgent and magical - a form of extrasensory perception brought to the surface through the act of making.
Clairvoyance is a collection of works having to do with the ‘artifacting’ or relic–making of both actual moments and assumed occurrences that utilize this kind of studio-driven ESP. The paintings, sculptures, installations, photographs and screenprints in this exhibit memorialize those events while acknowledging the distortion, misrepresentation or blatant fallacy inherent in them.
