Language is a system we use to clear things up, to understand the bigger picture, but language can also conceal, withhold and confuse. What happens to our narratives when characters or settings are missing or taken away? I am interested in things that do not adhere. In fragmentation.

Made from degenerated photocopies and uncertain pencil drawings, these images are an exercise in the fragility of human perception. They value perceptual failures, and contain real boundaries: literally walls and windows and frames that limit access. The blank spaces are as important as the positive ones.

Through a process of reduction and transformation, these pictures withhold explanation and propose simple fictions that allow us to contemplate and construct meaning. There are things we know and things we cannot understand. These images are about not knowing, about absences and removes.
