CAROLINE ATTAN Poetry, paradox and metaphor collide as coloured, patterned and folded structures interact creating a woven, textual narrative. Absorbed into a dense circular composition folded shapes rotate above a grid of hand written poetry. Latin American poetry selected from Carol Bracho, Elikura Chihuailaf, Pablo Neruda and Octavio Paz are unsettling and exhilarating in their complexity. Culturally significant in context and language elements of the poems are interpreted through colour and rhythm. The visual and tactile impact of these works reference the dynamic and often clashing colours and complex patterns of Peruvian and Mexican woven textiles. The sequence of hand written narrative is partially obscured by the folded paper forms as words and phrases pop out intermittently. Coloured, folded shapes weave complex and dynamic patterns, bright colours contrast with subtle tones and darker hues, illuminating the possibility of multiple futures. The large-scale circles invite an immersive experience as coloured folded forms simultaneously harmonise and clash in defiance of written language. Within these circular compositions, contradictions are revealed through oppositional elements: light and dark, background and foreground, large and small, revealed and concealed. The overall effect is of a sculptural, tactile, circular composition as the folded forms transform the grid into a dynamic force. Smaller works allow for quieter contemplation, a private dialogue likened to ancient calligraphy, secrets not quite revealed but are yet to be discovered. Circular, reductive mono-tone compositions using only black, white, cream and other singular colours pulsate subtly through tone and texture encouraging the viewer to enter a private, calm place. The form of the circle allows for diversity and repetition, secure in its continuous rotation.
