Untitled (An Atmospheric Disturbance of the Unified Figure)
Focusing on the interrelationships between movement, the body and environment. Natural elements are incorporated, introducing chance and resulting in unexpected, unintentional forms where body and clothing merge together into unified but transitory sculptural forms and fleeting gestures. The images capture the in-between moments beyond what the human eye normally can see. Using photography, the camera can freeze, defy gravity and create an extended duration from what we could consciously perceive. The influence of surrealism and the unconscious has provoked the departure from the typical pose. Rather than revealing the clothing as the focus, shape, dynamic movement of body and fabric together expresses energetic expansiveness of the whole figure. The figure occupies more space, more powerfully than is normally possible.
