What has most consistently interested me throughout my work in the arts, is the presence of an active figure in blank space. No horizon, no ground, no gravity. Time is a point not a line. A figure in constant motion in timeless space eliminates all cultural conventions and divisions. It is life simplified and amplified. It also allows for reading into any given picture the widest range of interpretations. Whether or not this is a comfortable situation, it represents a continuous commentary in the world, which may be the essential reason for art. The following groups of photographs are beginnings of working into and then through the idea of body, space and time. All mathematical schema are fictional.
The X-Coordinate, Propositions, Dimension, Mathematical Models, 1985 – 1979
Tongue-in-cheek viewpoints and old school photography. These are darkroom prints on paper with drawing in charcoal and ink.
