Wed 20 Mar - Sat 06 Apr 2019 'Bloom' - Wade Taylor

Bloom explores the relationship between painting and the film image, between personal memory and its connection with the histories of those who are strangers. Working from a long-ago acquired collection of Kodachrome film slides, Wade interprets images and worlds that he has had no direct experience with. Locations, subjects and time periods are unknown but through the process of painting the subjects take on a personal dimension, borrowing memories and elaborating, editing, and drawing out narrative. The work is a process of restoring life to forgotten histories.
