A gallery installation is like a book that can unfurl a sequence of ideas within the confines of a given space. In a photograph I saw many years ago, a small boy is standing in profile holding something cupped in his hands. A little girl stands facing him, leaning forward, her neck extended forward as far as it will go to get a look inside his hands. 

But her elbows are retracted backwards as if pulling back. That is the tension of looking that I aspire to engender in an audience: the transfer of information, as a slow unfolding, with the slight threat of a shock of understanding at an unexpected juncture.

Mapping the Dark

A five-year project mining the interior lives of ten imagined characters by conjuring a private mark for each persona and the tools with which to stabilize, suppress or activate an inner state.
