  • 31. Prof. André Stitt The Little Summer of St. Michael 2011 Oil on linen 120 x 120 cm My recent work reflects a concern with the visual codification of post-colonial landscapes and inhabited futures. Paint is utilised as a synthetic transmitter of experience that reflects the historical uncertainty of place and proposes contemporary genre painting as a transformative medium with redemptive potential. These paintings aspire to a condition of association and evocation rather than representation. As such, they occupy a liminal space that might be defined as ambiguous abstraction. This often reveals itself as a searching out of small, elusive moments and unconscious dilemmas that may implicate us in a larger communal, collective or cosmological narrative.Tuesday, 23 October 12
