Bradly Dever Treadaway

Artist Statement Submitted 2020

Building upon a 15-year archive-driven body of work investigating intergenerational communication and the passage of cultural currency, “Go Back, Go Back” employs the artist’s ancestral home as the site for the projection of photographs from early childhood onto the same surfaces and spaces from which they were taken nearly 4 decades ago.

The works blur the line between past and present, memory and vision, surface and screen, analog and digital, real and implied texture, tampering with the margins of recollection and testing representational limitations of lens-based media through a poetic interpretation of the interplay of the archive and observation. Fleeting and fading memories, broken links between generational connections linger at the fringes of the mundane and wherein surfaces serve as screens for the projection, physical possession and embodiment of decades old memories.
