BODY 2

Challis Triptych

Darkness and isolation are two strong words that fit well in the scenes that are produced through the relationship of father and son. The artist has used space, figure and perception to relive the experience of his father’s death, a fragment of his life his son believes will soon be burdened upon himself.

Reliving his father’s last days, the artist confronts the constant guilt he has because of his absence during his father’s treatment. Darkness provides absence of memory, figure and life. No trace of son or father’s presence, but fragments of despair and trauma remain.
