Between Nightmare and Madness
Asleep, when the mind is free and unfettered all seems correct and in order. Disjointed images flashing in front of closed eyes translate perfectly into linear narrative. Past and future join seamlessly to eclipse all possibility of an existing present. It is a world entirely of memory and hope and upon waking, confusion ensues. Interior and exterior reach the surface. There is no memory of peace made during the night. Conflicts resolved in earlier darkness reveal themselves as secret whispers.
The images in these mixed-media works are captured with a variety of 35mm and 120mm, positive and negative films. The images are digitized and printed with ink onto watercolor paper. The prints are then mounted to wood, and collaged with a variety of materials including acrylic and wax.
