A Field Guide To Getting Lost, new works by Joshua Flint
‘A Field Guide to Getting Lost,' draws a direct connection to literature and a book of the same title by Rebecca Solnit, whose writing embraces and explores “memory, place, loss, desire, and transformation.” She’s one of a number of authors who I’ve looked to for ideas presented in this body of work.
The paintings are about recollection, the fragmentary nature of identity, and the necessary faultiness of memory. This world connects more to literature, poetry, philosophy, science, and nature writing, rather than current events or the historical canon. Although, I think some of those influences inevitably find their way in.
There is a loose narrative to the show about recalling a journey: the people, places, and things remembered from this movement through time and space. In a way the work asks, "What are the stories we tell ourselves? How much is reality, how much is personal mythology, and where do we draw that line?"
"Illusion is also a path towards knowledge."
