Shot through glass and water, ‘river’ is about flow, about moving through layers and zones which may be real or imagined, it is about resonating with the rhythm and movement of life, consciousness and dreams. The juxtaposition of flowers, water and light seems to suggest sustenance and renewal and yet, they evoke a sense of slipping and drowning, of tears and loss. In these dream-like fragments, reflective surfaces seem to mirror the self-reflexive nature of the sentient being who tries to find an anchor, to somehow hold onto oneself. In this work, Wye tries to capture the dynamic nature of this tension between movement and containment.
