At home in a variety of media, Pam Yan Santos’ wall-bound works presents a still life of an indeterminate, archaic object — a bell or candelabra — along with its broken part. A visible stain, mostly in tones of sepia, foregrounds the obsolescence of the object in question, heightening its foreignness and inaccessibility. Investigating the object from various angles as though using the language of photography, Santos imbues the object with the aura of a relic.
