There is an emphasis within the work of a trifecta of relating themes all rooted in crisis and the slippage between binaries. This is made predominant through the crisis of the body in relation to the human way of seeing whereby we see bodies in everything. It also relates to the human want for change and advance in conjunction with the contradictory fear of metamorphosis, this contradiction interlinks with the crisis of photography (in relation to technological advance) and also the crisis of perception relating to ideas that within abstraction, under the influence of an object pregnant with attraction and repulsion or revulsion and seduction you are hooked in the act of cognition, deciphering and decoding. Through abstraction you are led (like in narrative) forcibly into disequilibrium and through the desire to achieve equilibrium the viewers thinking is forcibly penetrated, the memory of the challenging narrative resonates in the conscious.
