The Ocular Proof corresponds to images taken from a dream. The title comes from Shakespeare’s Othello: When Iago reveals the handkerchief which he had carefully planted, holding it up, he says: “The Ocular Proof.” In this piece the central form recreates a fleeting image that appeared as a dream dissolving in the early morning: a white satin cloth slips from a polished wooden table. The slide information superimposed derives from fragments of works of art such as a drawing by Mantegna, a sculpture of Leda and the Swam. The landscape or place of the image is Utah where I had recently photographed.

“Her technique combines drawing and photographic imagery in a lambent blaze of color, and looks as though it could have been executed by means of computer imaging but was not…Goldring’s work is literally a construction of reality, perception, and imagination. Its power lies in its easy persuasion of the viewer to enter into the world created in the pictures, or to imagine that world as overlapping with the quotidian one of actual experience.” — Ellen Handy
