A Solo Exhibition by Hillary Kane
Sanctum Shifting: a dialogue in layers
?I see my artwork as a journey in which the process, the very visceral act of creating, is as significant as the final outcome?? (hk)
Hillary Kane describes Sanctum Shifting, the theme of this exhibition, as a conversation about the simultaneous choreography of creation and destruction. In this body of work, a fa?ade of paint or clay cracks, warps, gives way, and in doing so, reveals a tender under layer, a hidden cameo, an evidence to the passage of time... the work itself comes to stand as a fa?ade: a posture of solidity in form or color, that then fractures along a fissure from some internal pressure?or is externally scarred, scratched, rubbed away and built up again. Through the rather ironic beauty in this process of deterioration?this dissimulation-- the depth of these patina can be perceived.
