States of Transition
In this series, diptychs explore the seasonal shift from winter into spring, a time when the various elements are all ready and pressing for change.
Using the traditional language of 4x5 film photography, the black and white photographs serve as a means of documenting the landscape, each depicting a particular part of water’s active nature we commonly encounter during this period. These central actions and gestures were then deconstructed and translated into abstract studio tableaus that offer an alternate representation and understanding of these water-related encounters.
Between the traditional method of black and white photography and the synthetic, abstract nature of the studio tableaus, two seemingly disparate languages assemble to show a way of seeing the minute interactions of water in a time of transformation.
