Bonanza II: Thin Mints examines the possibility of making works that exist in a liminal space between the conception and execution, the object and absence. Straddling opacity and poeticism, tactility and flatness, the process of making and meaning are revealed through gestures in the work. The queering of the frame and the suspension of time foster a dialogue between each artist about abstraction and representation. The work in Bonanza II translates beyond the object and into imaginary play, where the movement of stillness, the reality of cinema, the fragility of structure creates something familiar yet non-existent.
