Released in 2018, Endless Gone is an ongoing series of large scale, plexi-mounted photographs meant to explore memory and mood from a sensory perspective.
They are inspired by the beauty and poetry we create when we evoke our past. With details undefined and unassigned to time or place, what is left is the essence, the light, colour and feeling that we carry with us. Through this process, Laura Jane experiments with ambiguity to seek the point where a document is stripped of details that inform our rational mind in order to take us to a place where mood and feeling remain before we are lost to abstraction. Endless Gone is an ongoing series, one of several that explore a painterly and abstracted approach to photography. Beginning at a time of personal crisis where the artist was threatened with permanent blindness, Laura Jane began an exploration in photography that was emotionally based and stripped down to the essentials of light, colour, and often movement, in order to provide the distance that memory itself can create, making room for the senses to play.
At a time when photography began its obsession with megapixels and resolution, Laura Jane was pulled in another direction. She’s in search of that sacred space where the viewer collaborates with the work to create a truly intimate interpretation.
