Mixed Media Installation

The terminal moraine is the last point of glacial progress: the debris left once the ice has receded; the geographic mass that remains with its various sources and origins. For Welch, the mass is a composite of histories and edited forms, arranged in a context with many possible readings. An expansion of Welch’s established sensibility, the exhibition applies themes of scale, time, perception, form and intimacy to modes of reflection and understanding. Terminal Moraine further serves as a meditation on the complex co-dependency between the artist’s solitary experimentation and his role as a presenter.

The pieces in this exhibit are not to be taken as a retrospective, but offer choices of proximity and placement in a space – they do not dwell on each work’s original conceptual foundation or design. Each “formation” has a relationship with its neighbor within the environment, exerting itself in a present whose past is an echo. Relationships form. Each grouping maintains its rudimentary constituent characteristics, but due to a separation of time assumes a new identity and energy. Welch’s choices in the remaking are also mediated. The introduction of new media, objects, and ways of working have been subjected to innumerable external forces and reconsiderations. The communication with the viewer remains open-ended insofar as there is no expectation of her/his relationship to the works’ origins, except for what might already be understood: that our shared framework is the result of actual and metaphorical individual histories. Each work channels the speck of sand, the cluster of rocks, the beach, the island, or the person, which in the face of inertia are deposited on a landscape of inevitable permutation.
