About the Work in the Current Exhibition:

"Dual Impressions" explores themes of absence and presence, memory, and the passage of time. The contrast between the tangible swings in the gallery and the missing swings in the picture invites viewers to reflect on what is present and what is lost or remembered. The artwork hints at a narrative of displacement and evokes a longing for the innocence and simplicity of childhood.

By allowing viewers to actually use the swings, the piece introduces an additional layer of meaning: it questions whether it is acceptable to derive pleasure at the expense of a younger generation. The swings, removed from the playground and placed in the gallery, symbolize a transfer of joy and innocence now accessible to a different, potentially less deserving audience. This provokes viewers to contemplate the social and ethical implications of their own actions and privileges.

The installation transforms the gallery into a space of introspection, where the physical presence of the swings and their implied motion contrast with the painted image of what once was. This interplay between the real and the depicted, the present and the absent, challenges the viewer to engage with the work on an emotional and intellectual level. Consequently, "Dual Impressions" becomes a captivating exploration of duality in its many forms, encouraging reflection on the interplay of joy, loss, and responsibility.
