“Photography naturally speaks very clearly about time—something I’ve tried to cloud in the past by showing photographs alongside the exact objects they depict. While that considers the interplay around the translation of object to image—a photographic object being located at an intriguing point of overlap between the two—The Erratics does attempt to reach wider, bringing the flattening of that forth dimension into the picture, using subjects and process that literally and poetically speak about time: as surfaces stilling time I see rocks themselves as a type of image, and my own incremental carving of collected chalk with razorblades is like a gestural re-enactment of the erosion that so slowly shaped those formations photographed in the desert.” Darren Harvey-Regan as interviewed by Naomi Itami • Photomonitor
