The Enigma 1
 
View all sizes

The Enigma is a series of quiet & strangely disturbing scenes of remembered places, with themes that deal in different ways of treating tragedy, departure, and melancholy.

We are caught at the joint between two worlds and two entirely incompatible modes of time. We can speculate whether the enigma in question is the relationship between the real and the unreal, after the artist felt the nimbus of ambrosial revelatory memories resurface from being in this landscape, in which the artist remembered, as a young girl, her previous encounters & visits to European cities, memories of worlds that appeared before her as if for the first time.
The 'painting' captures a portion of a land in an eerie mood with the strange artificiality of dream. The desolate land bordered by soft hills and littered by industrial facades, long shadows pointing toward a region where the atmosphere diminishes and God knows what lies beyond there. Deep colours of dusk, perhaps some strange midway point in the day. Eerie figures transfixed, statuesque, frozen in that moment of time, a tower structure visible in the distance, looming out of the misty memories like some remnant of an edifice.

They are backdrops rather like that of a dreamed theatrical set or from the kind of haunted landscape we might encounter, with their disordered collections of hieroglyphic symbols that seemed when dreamed to mean so profoundly much. Speaking in sign language of a lost other world, but a world we lose by merely waking up into sanity, where the dream-like godly utterances assume the normal inanity of the ready-made creation of everyday objects.
That clash of the past and present, the moods, thoughts & even the sounds that permeate the faded, dream-like apparitions found there, produce strange psychological effects, suggesting sorrow, disorientation and nostalgia.
