held back;

Artist statement

I the figure, I held time captive. In a depopulated background. In a preserved moment, a past, a memory, my comfort. I dislocated myself from a landscape, a land reconstructing itself in time. to gaze upon the change and question. What is becoming? Echoes reverberate, a juxtaposition of times, in a constructed barrier of my own. I stand nostalgic and held back.


A self portrait expressing the notion of dislocation from land. Composed in the form of two photographs in a constructed frame which holds an image printed and attached to a frame and placed in the landscape for the second photograph.
