During flow passage becomes production. ‘Onset’ reflects on the act of becoming, known as Poiesis. A thick mass oozes through a sphincter, whether dough, icing, toothpaste, clay, molten glass or plastic, this image of extrusion stands for the moment of creative output. Repetition endows the image with iconic power to connect the idea of creation and production to the viewer's desire to create.
In this project the same image is treated using different reproduceable techniques: lino cut, etching or egg tempera painting, particularly chosen to associate it with medieval religious iconography.
