Abstract: Dust: Defining the invisible ‘If absence is the most compelling form of presence, then emptiness is pregnant with fullness’ (Paul.W. Ashton, Evocations of Absence, Spring Journal Inc, 2007 back cover). My practice emerges from my recent PhD research, which examines how we understand and perceive surface and space within an image, particularly where both digital and hand-drawn marks co-exist. It investigates how the visual presence of (or illusion of) dust generates a fundamental shift in the perception and reading of the photographic printed image within contemporary fine art practice. A central aspect of the research is a body of practical work investigates the clash between our perception of the illusionistic space of the photographic image and the simultaneous emphasis on the physical picture surface created by drawing of surface dust, and suggests that this clash offers new avenues for the visual image to explore perceptions of space, temporality, and mortality
