Drawing on movement as the generative agent of their composition, the images and objects of First. One. Thing. Then. Another. trace and respond to nuanced shifts in time and space: the sliding of the gaze over the landscape, individuals transitioning through public space, the trails left by the artists own body via the motion of the camera and the gestures of the brush, and, eventually, the changing relative positions of viewer and art object within the gallery.

Employing the properties of acrylic sheet to facilitate direct access to the space ‘behind’ the image, whether painting or video projection, this space has become an active component. The images’ supporting structures are made explicit, underscoring the materiality of the image and playing with slips between literal space, material presence, and conceptual or illusory space opened up by each work.
