Subdued is a project that reflects on the feelings the uncanny produces, how our realities transform during the dark hours, in a strange and unsettling manner. It challenges the boundaries of interior and exterior, consciousness and unconsciousness, light and dark. The eeriness is heightened with the use of domestic space, something familiar transmutes into unfamiliar territory. It combines the domestic with urban landscapes, still-life and abstraction, acting as a veil to what we know or what we think we should know within the narrative the viewer creates. The illumination of chemical energy in the nocturnal space and the absence of human presence suggests the end of time.
