Aspect/Ratio Projects is pleased to present Eulogy, a show with Jovan C. Speller

Eulogy is a mixed media series by artist Jovan C. Speller that documents the artist’s notions of reincarnation. The works represented in this series are materializations of distant recollections of a past life - accepting the unreliability of memory itself, and exploring the myths that remain instead. With this body of work Speller reflects on memory and the transient nature of consciousness. Eulogy considers the process of reincarnation as a passage and depicts a body as it transitions from one life to the next. The departure and the arrival. This series, which includes photographs, resin encased images and artifacts, and mixed media works reference cinematic imagery and elements of visual story mapping to document a metamorphosis.
