> DESCRIPTION

Renuka Fernando investigates the act and the potentialities of drawing. The works go beyond the conventional boundaries and material of a work on paper, to that of the sculptural and the psychological.

Whilst initially my work was an investigation of place, in this case the landscape situated around Hill End, as I progressed  I began to understand that it was as much about the self as it was about landscape.

Our experience of the world is understood through visual and sensory perception which is always selective and subjective. But knowledge is mediated by memory, which, at the best of times, is an unreliable mechanism of invention and loss. This project questioned if I could disturb the surface of what I thought I knew and find a more authentic way of mark making in order to represent the residues of experience as deposited by memory. I began a drawn conversation between experience, memory and the material world itself.”
