There is a moment between the beginnings of an initial idea, the glimpse of some intangible moment and the creation of an image that mirrors the relationship between reality and illusion. Subtle shifts in perception, the play of light, shadow and scale transform reflected images into abstractions that reference monumental forms within the man-made landscape. The interplay of light and dark takes on a more dynamic role, revealing delicate shifts in structure rendered in reflection. These surfaces develop into interlocking components that attract and repel, building the illusion of space.
Subtlety and suggestion intertwine to leave the impression of something more tangible, but fleeting, through the juxtaposition of form, contrasts and the reflection of constructed systems.
I am interested in searching out those in-between spaces where perception and true knowing can coexist in ephemeral balance, shifting to find a resting place first in one realm, then slipping back over to the other persuasion. It is the nature of these inquiries and thoughts that help fuel my investigations.
