About this Curation

Exploring subjects found within interior and exterior spaces and considered from a range of distances and angles, these works offer an alternative view of everyday things presented in less conventional ways. Engaging the viewer with images that invite contemplation and pause for thought, these works tease at the edges of recognition, proposing new interpretations and relationships between familiar subjects and objects.
