this minimalist work centers on what i describe as the “texture of a moment”. they are the dramatic pauses, glimpses of our surroundings which turn into a freeze frame where life somehow becomes particularly sensitive and highlighted – the final bubble of air just under the surface, having escaped from someone who’s been under too long; the final drops of mud falling on top of those already settling into place, a new foundation formed from the destruction of an old hierarchical structure; turbulent snow, falling in silence into drifts hiding everything unclean. these pieces reflect the textures associated with specific, tangible experiences, moments or events and feelings, which at the moment seem overwhelming but quickly fade from memory.

the intention is to elicit a response, to connect with an old forgotten feeling or memory, and to gain from that connection – who and where we were then with who and where we are now.
