The Ever images mark small events as potential acts of immensity. The images play with the ambiguity of appearances and utilize the contradiction between objective and subjective vision to explore the poetic dimension of photography. Proximity and distance collapse, and conjure a more mythical and spiritual relationship with landscape and the forces of nature. Crystalline, elemental cloudscapes, and ruptures and fissures in the land form cryptic images that are ‘real’ shots but abstract in appearance and idea. The works are micro in scale yet macro in vision and concept.
Ocular perception, light and duration inform the conceptual basis for the Ever images. I’m looking at different modes of visual knowledge, and how notions of image, perception and illusion can inform the representation outside of sight; a view beyond a specific site and seeing.
