“The space beyond us into which we continually dissipate, does it come to taste of us at all? Do Angels take back into themselves only what is theirs, only what has streamed from them, or do they, as if mistakenly, take in a trace of what we are?”
These are lines from Rilke’s ‘Duino Elegies’, a poem which I have often used as a reference point for my work. Although in formal terms mine and Addy’s practice differs there is a cross over, a shared perception of both landscape and memory. Addy herself refers to ‘glimpses’, fleeting observations from which she creates an idealised landscape; part observation, part imagination, part sensation.
