Study of a Walnut Tree

Study of a Walnut Tree juxtaposes past familial images and objects with their impersonations and re-constructions. The interplay between the image and the object brings about a third space that is neither located in the imitation, as a picture, nor in the replication, as a solid manifestation, but rather in transition temporally, from one to the other. Highlighting the importance of this interstitial space, the work negotiates the contingency of cultural values in relation to predetermined markers of identity and visual semiotics.
