Repetition-Repetition A multi-media body of work by Dominic Ellison All acts of doubling start here, at the root of our lives: our flesh, our blood, our coming to be. In an epoch proud of instant copiers but perturbed by errant copies, delighted with lightweight artificial limbs but disturbed by the likeliness of clones, biology itself is invested with the rich ambivalence of myth. The stories we tell about our bodies, under the sign of the double helix, are as generative as they are genetic; we are said to begin, literally and originally, by making copies of our cells. Hillel Schwartz The Culture of the Copy. Featured her is a series of work based on doubling, repletion and reproduction. Partly analysing the artist's own obsession with making bodies of work with repeated forms, objects, styles and themes the work struggles to discover the nature of society's obsession with reproduction and its relationship to the development of the person both biologically and environmentally. The work featured takes the form of painting, digital printmaking, sonic sculpture and installation.
