Curator’s Comments:

 

I like the slight melancholy mystery of these images.  In general, the softened color palette and contrast evokes a faded memory, but the primary forms have a bold function.  Evolution employs a primordial form, spiraling up out of the water like a mythic sea creature.  I also see the faintly grainy quality and washed out magenta tonality as harkening back to old photographic documentary film, though I’m unsure of the media/process you’ve actually employed here. I find the vertical orientation is also unexpected for the surreal landscape, as the weighty spiral form doesn’t appear able to sustain its upward thrust for long, as it curls into itself.  The piece entitled Liz is an enticing picture as well; some more direct photographic reference to lizards is evident, but there is also a diffused manipulation of the image that muffles direct or overt pictorial representation.  The resulting image calls to mind pictographic symbolism from a host of ethnic traditions and artistic eras.  In this way, Liz reminds me of a mellowed Florence Putterman painting.  So the piece seems less about the natural subject depicted, and more about the state of flux, or evanescent movement.
