Somewhere within and without

Somewhere within and without, attempts to subtly shift and deconstruct the ways in which we engage with space, time and perception—being and not being. It draws upon personal historical identity to raise questions about the self before and after a traumatic event such as a birth of a child or the death of a loved one. There is a strangeness in this liminal place. Waking each morning, to the familiar, coming into who you are now versus who you were before—feeling only an echo of the former self.  These images are distillations of these senses and experiences. Using everyday household objects as a point of departure from what we think we know, the work offers a surface to meditate and contemplate these discordant and poignant transitions. .
