Pursuing Reality: Possibilities, a photographic essay by Jo-Anne Green
Introduction by Jacki Apple
One of the greatest challenges for a contemporary artist in this time of environmental crisis is to open our minds and senses to a different way of perceiving and understanding the world we inhabit. Pursuing Reality: Possibilities, by Jo-Anne Green is just such a unique series of multilayered digital photo collages that take us on a non-linear temporal journey through the living eco system we are a part of and dependent on for our own survival as a species. Green is a visual composer whose symphonic orchestration of images allows us to experience the natural world from a non-anthropocentric perspective in deep time. Her imagery speaks to the mortality and fragility of all living things, while simultaneously expressing the extraordinary resilience and cyclical life force of the organic world and all its botanical and sentient beings. Mapping the neural transmitters beneath the material forms, each image aligns the micro and macro patterns across living systems. The result is a poetic meditation on the interconnectedness of matter, energy, consciousness, perception, and memory on a multi-sensory level.
