Recently I’ve been investigating transciency, dislocation and fragmentation as a way to structure the unfolding of sight as it is brought to awareness. Through the interpenetration of painting and photography I hope to create a state of perpetual becoming yet paradoxically dissolving; an endless procession of moments held in time and space and embodied in the art object. This corresponds with an awareness that is the mutual exchange between the interior dimensions of the self and the outer world of physical phenomenon. The dimension that is held is not one without the other, but rather the simultaneous conscious awareness of both. This awareness then becomes the vehicle for the exploration of human depth; spiritual, psychological and physical.
