Statement for Untitled Series, 2000-2001

I am interested in the indescribable states of physical being - the relationship between the veneer and what lies beneath; the dichotomy of the corporeal and the intangible. I wish to make work that blurs the distinctions between personal subjective experience and the possibility of absolute truths. The images are not intended to depict an alien realm, but instead to represent the conditions of our own.
