Sandy Young Statement

PALIMPSEST
(the second “p” is silent)

Definition:

(1) Writing material (as a parchment or tablet) used one or more times after earlier writing has been erased.

(2) Something having usually diverse layers or aspects apparent beneath the surface. Something that has many obvious stages or levels of meaning, development or history.

The word “palimpsest” comes from Latin palimpsestus from Ancient Greek παλ?μψηστος (palímpsestos, “scratched or scraped again”), literally meaning “scraped clean and used again”.

I find resonance with the second definition of “palimpsest” –where I am creating “…something that has many layers or aspects beneath the surface… many obvious stages or levels of meaning…” To that, I add dimensionality.

I weave imagery into multiple planes in order to create a feeling of dimensionality. This aspect of my work also serves as a metaphor for the multiple dimensions of life experience. Markings and handwriting symbolically represent tracings of internal experience. Distressed and fragmented layers allude to the passage of time. As with memory, one moment is erased, while the next is painted, leaving only impressions of the first.

I am often inspired by turn-of-the-century photographs, handwritten documents and time-worn objects. I see these as evidence of someone or something gone before, and use them to convey a timelessness. Mixing old with new, combining disparate images and elements, I seek to create harmony and express a connectivity among all.
