Rachel Healy’s work is informed by her interest in art history, cinema and the convergence of art and the moving image. In her debut solo exhibition she explores the process of image-making and the mechanism of the creative process. To begin and begin again as if for the first time uses Healy’s interest in the domain between motion and still pictures to examine the translation of an image from a photograph; the reduction of information in which the work becomes symbolic in content, in an effort to rearrange the established relations and patterns of understanding and perception.
The show features a selection of drawings and paintings together with appropriated images from the 1970’s magazine series ‘THE MOVIE: The Illustrated History of the Cinema’. The show also comprises of a hand drawn animation piece along with a sculptural work incorporating early animation processes which predate the invention of film. To begin and begin again as if for the first time is the last in a series of exhibitions at Satellite Project Space where invited artists were afforded the opportunity to expand their enquiry into new directions in contemporary drawing.
