"'Oblivion 2, 2022' alludes to a lifetime of accumulated memories and identity gradually erased by diseases like dementia.
The degradation of memory is conveyed by the mould-like background colours eroding and obscuring the clarity of the circular image. By using my personal visual journals, I acknowledge my strong personal and artistic connection with my aunt, who also documented her travels in visual diaries."
Stuart Meyer-Plath is completing his second year of a Master of Visual Art at the Queensland College of Art. He is a multi-disciplinary artist who has been exhibiting since 1987 in both solo and group exhibitions.
Stuart has embarked upon several art trips overseas to Asia, India, Europe and South Africa. When not traveling, he would have weekly dinners with his aunt discussing travel, poetry, writing and art. In late 2020, his aunt was diagnosed with dementia and admitted into an aged care facility. The weekly dinners continued, however their discussions increasingly shifted to recounting his aunt’s childhood and young adult memories.
