“In the Very Same Breath.” Along with the rest of the country, my thoughts this week have been on water. Its power. Its unpredictability. How it can change everything. So my thoughts for this week’s throwback went to an image of water, and the concept of things changing in unexpected ways.
The physical traits of water are, to me, powerful metaphors of truths underlying so much of reality. A surface that appears serene may hide energy, interactions and swirling forces beneath. From the surface you can’t always tell. And water can change in immediate ways. It can spill over. It can be moved by wind. It can boil.
I am interested in simultaneous events and the way they add depth to our understanding of reality. Just as we are experiencing one scene, at the very same time – in the very same breath – other events are occurring. It may be in another place. Or it may be in the same spot where we are, but inside, or in the realm of memory and dream. This means the visible world holds more layers and richness than just what we can see. Exploring this in layers and textures is the heart of my artmaking.
