Silhouttes, Lattices, Palimpsests
Here I have collected souvenirs of form and frame, unearthed, imprinted and splayed across a variety of spaces and backdrop. Some of these forms are themselves full expressions of life, snatched out of their slow motion unfoldings. Others are the exposed husks and skeletons which once contained or else suspended life.
Patterns of the natural world and its processes repeat themselves over and over again, sometimes exactly, but often in such a way as to merely evoke connection. We see a stark pattern in a striking thing, and may find ourselves straining to connect it with its distant cousin, an image only half-remembered, or a sensation lingering just outside the edge of reach.
To collect into categories by evoking connections, real or imagined, is the small work of building a body of "knowledge." By making such collections and connections, we ourselves shape and make familiar (by masking it with artifice) the world of unintelligible, inseparable sensation, otherwise dizzying in its scope and terrifying in its intensity.
