Glimpse. Desire for a presence.
Glimpse is a meditation on the fragmentary nature of presence and the collision between external reality and the internal space of memory, daydreams, and the subconscious. The mundane, rote engagement, daily landscapes and moments of seemingly little import provide a vacancy and spaciousness allowing for psychological drifts into a presence of greater resonance. This body of work illuminates and in turn embraces these interstitial moments that make up the majority of ones life.

Glimpse considers how to describe this obfuscated reality. The images serve as keepsakes of a desire for presence within the poignant normalcy of life's in-betweens. Glimpse will be on exhibition in “un/common skin” curated by Michael Foley in Fall of 2012 at the SVA Gallery in New York City.
