Curtains (2016)

The large prints that make up this series explore the act of simultaneously obscuring and revealing. First, a sheet of photographic paper is hidden under layers of curtain. A flashlight is then used to expose through the fabric, creating unique and unpredictable patterns based on how the light moves through the dense layers of material. The resulting image is given to chance. It is only one of an infinite number of possible images that could occur through the variable and unknowable elements that reside within the process. While dealing with a personal narrative, these pieces continue to explore the intersection between the photographic and the painterly, as well as incorporating aspects of the textile world.
