I use imagery of the body to depict “moments of contact” between the self and the other. The fragmentation of these moments lends ambiguity to the pictorial space and to the boundary between the people portrayed. Empty space and geometric elements are juxtaposed with organic imagery as a means to balance perspectives of reason and the senses. From afar the work appears to be a unit that references objectivity and systemization. When viewing the work at close range the system collapses, engaging the viewer intimately and personally. Due to the physical constraints of our being we are unable to interact with the work from both perspectives in the same time and space. My work makes this condition apparent, echoing our inherent struggle to simultaneously understand relationships from the subjective and objective, the ordered and the chaotic.
