The circle, a symbol used frequently in my work, is suggestive of the “void."
Arguably, the emptiness seen in the void is not emptiness at all, but impermanence or lack of absolute identity. Like a circle, everything is ultimately interconnected and mutually dependent.
With all things dynamic, there is a constant state of flux - an exchange of energy and information that transforms through the passage of time. The multiple pieces in this exhibition relate to that idea of interconnectedness.
The multiples are composed of panels I have done at various times in my life. I have recognized their connection recently. By placing the once disconnected images together as diptychs and triptychs, I draw attention to the competing forces present in opposing panels and I begin to question their differences.
A few of the seeming contradictions are soft images embedded in hard surfaces. Orderly or intentional placement of objects juxtaposed with wildly abstract lines and objects meant to protect or used to construct cities are seen as menacing.
While the connection between the panels is meant to be ambiguous, these dualities may actually be two sides of the same coin. What appears as a chaotic relationship, may actually be the exact moment in time where chaos is drawn into order.
