A Constellation of Sorts: Pause, Glean, Repeat, Drift, Wait
Testa, Andrew Mark

My art practice is concerned with the nature of imagesimages which at once inscribe a historical continuity between the past and present, as well as index an inevitable sense of loss and drift. My MFA thesis exhibition, A Constellation of Sorts, is an assemblage of found and family photographs within my personal collection, to be shared and hidden, discontinuous yet whole. Through collecting, story telling, making and folding, my exhibition and thesis support paper reframe and represent fragments of images and thoughts into assembled entities. When one pauses and allows their eyes and mind to wander, these prints and texts may lead to nuanced observation, questioning how we know what we think we know about an image.
