From the Light of the Sun

The light of the sun prompted the work for this exhibit.  In Skopelos, Greece, the night winds from Africa created cloud swirls and rough seas; in the morning, the sun’s light was refracted through ice crystals and fog, and then danced on the eddies and currents, strengthened by the moon high tide. In Glendo, Wyoming, we saw the solar eclipse, a unique event that was greater than the sum of its parts:  the vanishing sun, the dark moon, the four minutes of night time at totality, the stunning corona, and the perfect joy at witnessing this rare occurrence.

Using watercolors, drawings, sintra and screen prints, I have tried to recreate the sense of wonderment engendered by observing and researching these phenomena.

DISPLACED OBJECTS

My intention in producing this series was to examine my own place in this society, distilling the images down to three core elements - subject, environment, and viewpoint.

Aware of the image’s enormous power to represent or frame a historical/social memory, and to define a person, place, or time, I wanted to document my own displacement by allowing the viewer to complete the sentence I initiated in my photography. Like myself, each object, although real, dislocates the environment with a sense of “no belonging”.
