London-based artist Haydn Albrow demonstrates her exploration of material and our somewhat futile process of remembering an ephemeral moment. Albrow studies and “captures” the fleeting aspect of memories by transferring photographic images onto different materials through different mediums that bring out spotty and colorful results. Recently, the artist has created plaster casts of ordinary photographic prints and explains her process: “Using a variety of methods I attempt to transfer the original image onto the blank plaster, usually using a combination of water and chemicals. The solvent allows the ink to bleed onto the plaster, causing random sections of the photograph to become printed. The transferred images appear distorted, conveying the sensation of a fragmented memory. Transferring one material onto another illustrates the process of how our memory works imperfectly, with incomplete and hazy data transferred from one medium to another, leaving us to interpret an imperfect representation of the truth.” Haydn Albrow’s art is displayed as an installation to give the viewer perspective of both the concept and process.
