Weave

About Weave

This series initially developed out of a feeling that the works in the series Closed Circuit, lacked texture. From this point of departure, I began a series of experiments aimed at introducing texture (or evidence of the artist's hand) into my photographs. The resulting works became a study in the nature of individuality and personal identity.

Implied within the term individuality is the notion of an indivisible duality between action and being, self and other, internal and external. Though certain perspectives may prevent a gestault view of the whole, each opposite is nevertheless present and influential at every point. As each experience passes through the permeable sheath between self and other, the individual and external world are permanently altered, changing form from one moment to the next.
