Nat Faulkner - Deluge
For Commonage, Nat Faulkner has created work that explores our innate relationship to time. Oxidising, decaying, layering, mirroring, these images recall still life or romantic landscapes that evoke ephemerality and transitory states.
A walnut spine, like an elongated figure, stems downwards into an inverted weathervane, uprooting our sense of orientation – south bearing northward, the four cardinal courses of navigation remain stationary. Dried carnations retain their upright structure becoming wilting sepia memoirs through this act of preservation. Assemblages from glass, wood, paper and other found elements are like strata or apertures to fragmented views of time.
