Historical Context:
"There is a space that exists upon the tip-of-the-tongue, a site of profound intrinsic curiosity. (Taste aside) it is concerned with imminence and inaccessibility, language and memory. Sometimes the first word out of our mouth is hardly a word at all, but rather this inarticulate sound that is more closely related to what we would identify as gesture. Suspended, held at the cusp of verbalization, there is something there and you feel it strongly. It is a haunting moment, the structure of feeling. The investigation of such a quality, one that is more properly sensuous than cognitive in its scope and depth of inquiry, is one at the core of my work and studio practice." - Jeremy Brooks
