Shifting Circles

Marlo began her first edition of ‘Circles’ during isolation, translating the emotional impact of monotony through acts of repetition. Now that prolonged isolation is a more distant reality, Marlo’s new series of mirrors, Shifting Circles, departs from the realm of rigidity to question those who view it; does repetition free, or bind us?

Picture frames collected in Marlo’s local area are repetitively hand-wrapped in steel straps, and welded in place. The original wooden frame that gives the Shifting Circles mirrors their initial form, is then burned away. After the flames subside what remains is a chance deformation, which Marlo simply captures and renders permanent.
