Abstract

A solo exhibition of original creative works entitled ‘Mutation Ecstasy” comprised of 21 painted and collaged works on paper installed at the XS Gallery at the Institute of Fine Arts, Faculty of Education and Arts, Jan Kochanowski University, Kielce, Poland.
These painted and collaged works were extensively reworked with oil and acrylic paint. The works were presented individually and some were double framed as related diptych works.

Research Contribution
The creative works presented here tracked the construction and layering of images involved in recollection. The graphical signs deployed represented a sense of the fictional power of memory to construct and layer information. The combining of representational elements and surface texture and colour traced an outline of memories capacity to form mnemonic relationships with the physical world and the intense uncontrolled associations evoked by attempts at forced recall. The layering of the images responds to the process of filtering information from the real for selection by the mind and represents visual art activity as a physical process of memory.

Research Significance
The exhibition was curated by Marcin Mikotajczyk for the Institute of Fine Arts under the direction of Professor Wieslaw Luczaj, the catalogue essay was written by Jacek Rybinski. The opening exhibition was well attended by senior staff and doctoral students of the University. Griffith University was referenced in the catalogue essay and in the biographical material advertised for the exhibition. I was interviewed by Polish national radio about the exhibition and the exhibition was the subject of a short documentary film available on YouTube. The exhibition has led to an invitation to undertake a research residency at the Institute to extend and continue my research into Art and Memory.
