Bending Light

Do we look beyond
what we immediately see …
In the complexity of modern society, photographs structure our perception of environment. They provide us with moments in time of individual events and specific places.  Often, the dynamics of subjective context and the momentary specifics go unnoticed.  Images are relegated to single points of view and understanding.
Through the reductive abstraction of figure and ground, an altered view of reality evolves.  The reductive merging of the component parts provokes attention to composition, shape and form.  The dynamic interaction of the elements of the whole are redefined.
With the single point of view removed, the redefined image challenges multiple interpretations rich in the allegorical metaphors of the world around us.
