In this exhibition images of artificial nature and drawn out time-scapes come into play as they create disruptions and truncations in the narrative fabric of the work. Hasson Walder’s meticulous drawings and watercolors generate graphic representations of memory and thoughts about time. The isolated images on the empty page oscillate between digital and archaic time, and contemporary and ancient sensibilities come into play as in the image of a medieval knight carved in stone partnered with a skeleton sporting a Mickey Mouse shaped bone. This cluster of ambiguous imagery retrieves a double vision effect reminiscent of a still frame capturing two instances of a moving image.
