‘A Blue Process’
Mission Gallery presents a selection of new artworks produced during a partnership residency between Mission Gallery and Gower College. The title ‘A Blue Process’ is taken from the central piece, a new short film performed, filmed and edited by Erin Rickard.
Ritual is at the core of her recent artworks, exploring the rite of passage, and the transitional moments we encounter when passing from one status to another. These moments suspended in time offer no resolution; instead they provoke consideration and the importance of a journey. Symbolism is deeply rooted within our human desire and need to understand life, for this reason it plays an important role withinErin’s practice.
