I'm not sure if you remember my disappointment at the Hughie O'Donoghue exhibition I went to see at Trinity Hall Cambridge. It was not how I had imagined it would be...Anyway here is a little virtual curation for you, without text because I am feeling so tired. This is the Excavations exhibitions I wanted to find; of bodies recuperated from postcards, from memory, from their immersion within history. The caborundums have a visceral quality; they look like traces of remains, they could be fossils left on the surface of stone, cave paintings, photo negatives. It is these prints which perform archaeologies and excavations, not those paintings I saw in the small room at Trinity Hall.

  1. The whites and neutrals almost look like blended tree bark, while the red's used are so vivacious that they resemble blood. But each painting offers a story that is neither horrific or mythical. But instead the pure essence of human art. As you said, like a cave painting.

  2. These are superb, reminding me of the fuzzy black and white photos that "prove" the existence of ghost, or the shroud of Turin.
