Endless Gone by Laura Jane Petelko

Beginning at a time of personal crisis where the artist was threatened with permanent blindness, Laura Jane Petelko began an exploration in photography that was emotionally based and stripped down to the essentials of light, color, and often movement, to provide the distance that memory itself can create, making room for the senses to play.

Her series, titled, Endless Gone, is an ongoing sequence of large scale, plexi-mounted photographs meant to explore memory and mood from a sensory perspective.

With details undefined and unassigned to time or place, what is left is the essence, the light, color and feeling that we carry with us. Through this process, Laura Jane experiments with ambiguity to seek the point where a document is stripped of details that inform our rational mind to take us to a place where mood and feeling remain before we are lost to abstraction.

Laura Jane Petelko is currently represented by Cavalier Galleries.

Artist statement on the series

Endless Gone

Endless Gone is an ongoing series of large scale, plexi mounted photographs meant to explore memory and mood from a sensory perspective. 

Inspired by the beauty and poetry we create when we evoke our past. With details undefined and unassigned to time or place. What is left is the essence, the light, colour and feeling that we carry with us. 

In this process, Laura Jane experiments with abstraction to seek the point where a document is stripped of the details that inform our rational mind and take us to a place where mood and feeling remain, before we are lost in to abstraction. 

 Endless Gone explores a painterly and abstracted approach to photography.  Beginning in the 2000’s , Laura Jane began an exploration in photography that was emotionally based and stripped down to the essentials of light, colour and often movement in order to provide the distance that memory itself can create, making room for the senses to play.

At a time when photography began its obsession with megapixels and resolution, Laura Jane was pulled in another direction. In search of that sacred space where the viewer collaborates with the work to create a truly intimate interpretation.
