Wave/particle, uncanny/concrete, intuitive/logical, romantic/wry, objective/subjective, funny/sad. These pairs can exist together but are often unstable, disrupting our emotional and logical equilibrium, making fertile ground for experiment. I tap this instability in paintings, prints, and photographs that simultaneously create space then empty it out; that position humor against the stoic and confuse whether we’re laughing with or at; that set landscape as a field for opposition in a subtly confrontational fashion.

Spatially, photons are mass-less particles, so small they take up no volume. Neither do they experience the passing of Time – each instant is infinitely long. Self-reflexivity involves the world outside of us as well as our own consciousness, and light’s simultaneous state can be used as a meditation on perspectival possibility; the introspective and outwardly investigative as contradictory pair.

Light points both inward and outward.
