Highlighting the spaces between the real and the referential, Donna Gough’s works build upon a conceptual framework alluding to Vedic philosophy, quantum thinking and spatial perception.
Linking drawing, sculpture, installation and light-based media, Gough’s practice is an enquiry into the unknown, and the illusion of time within our consciousness.
Regarding you are (here) now, she notes: “Not knowing what you future is going to be doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist. Each of our ‘nows’ influence a future momentarily beyond our grasp. If we stand back and reflect on our ‘nows’ in sequence, time starts to flow. But the present tense is timeless – and always now.”
