Images From the Side of Sense Haunt Him in His Vision, 2018 is a silent video projection on 28 foot main sail suspended upside down from gallery ceiling. I have nicknamed the artwork The Dreamer.
The greatest disruptions to motivation, to drive, to inspiration, can be reality – the side of sense. Projected upon a capsized sailboat sail that is luffing as if underwater, already a signifier of failure, distant cliffs rise from the sea and thunderclouds grow overhead. The images then shift, the clouds solidify to rock and the rocks soften to clouds as the sea and sky switch places. My work often plays with the perception of place but also with our knowledge of ourselves through location and heuristic modes of inquiry.
