Statement:

Willie Stewart’s work images his understanding of how we regard and arrange time, where we place longing, and what reminiscence looks like. Overall, his imagery tends to evoke rather than describe an experience. Through his usage of hallucinatory tropes, he invites us to a Symbolists’ trance of metaphorical and subliminal transcendence. An investigation of memories, both personal and cultural, arise through these different perceptions of time, while he also offers a nostalgic capsule and embracement of sentimentality, fixing instants between two points – a beginning and an end.
