Parallels series

Parallels takes on a different perspective for the viewer. The figure in the space may not be referencing a psychological space necessarily, but psychic portraits in which the viewer is witnessing. It is not obvious if the viewer is seeing a glimpse inside a psyche or a sight of someone in various stages of psychotic breakdown. The marks in relation to the figures act as an internal indication of a weakened psyche. Like the Flux series, there is a tension with the figures and speak towards instability. The size of the figures is an important aspect of the work; in life size, the viewer is likely to feel empathy at some level or evoke feelings of fragility. This series is unique in that the work is mounted onto an aluminum panel which hangs the image a few inches away from the wall, without the visual constriction of a frame.
