Part of installation series, centred on written piece 'You Alright'.
In ‘YA No. -0...’ the painter muses on a creature which had passed away upon his arrival to the isolated island to which he is confined. The creature’s ancestry evolved with weakness due to an insular existence and succumbed to extinction. The murky agar jelly is circumscribed by the acrylic sheet, denying it and all that exists within it connection to anything beyond. The creature’s bloodline attempts to shine through this structure, only to be absorbed into the fabric of the bygone. Graphite powder floats inside the agar (nano carbon being the most light absorbing material known to man), effectively blotting out the light into obscurity.
