The paintings, if that's what they are, translate the fixed light of old photographs into unstable images that shift in appearance depending on the light in which they are viewed: a positive when lit from above becomes a negative when lit from the side; when lit from the front the image dissolves into formlessness. In this way they reveal—if only for fleeting moments—unexpected latencies within the images and promote fresh connections and new histories between them.

While the choice of images is not arbitrary, the ideas that inform the works and the links between them are not clearly defined. Rather, they offer an invitation to see connections and to narrate stories, stories that evolve from exhibition to exhibition. That said, certain themes thread through all the works presented here, entangling them also with the related series of clouds and hands.
