Disappearing Act animates drawing works, depicting a scene based on family photographs, fractured memories and subliminal stills. A blanket is seen blowing in the wind at the beach in a hypnotic like gesture. Utilizing a non-narrative structure, the work fluctuates between realism and abstraction and hovers somewhere ambiguously between remembering and forgetting. The picture plane itself becomes a symbolic window for the ambiguity evident in memory.
