Continuous Positive – Shannon Williamson

Continuous Positive follows the artist’s long-standing preoccupation with corporeal anxiety and embodied experience. In this series of works on paper, Shannon employs a combination of cartographic, anatomical and gestural drawing styles, moving from the figurative form to more annotative mark-making to document the impact of emotional disturbance on the integrity of the body.

“In the works for ‘Continuous Positive’ the figure is both revered and deconstructed and at times completely abandoned. Re-occurring motifs, diagrammatic languages and hyperbolic colours are used to create synesthetic translations of sensory experience into visual information. Some of the works shape these ‘synesthetic translations’ upon figurative scaffolds while others layer them between quantitative medical annotations to create incomplete maps for both trauma and solution in dysfunction”
– Shannon Williamson, 2016
