Sight Unseen

2014

In the series Sight Unseen I use photography as a tool to suspend and distort reality. Interested in notions of faith, doubt and magic, I photographed a diverse range of objects—quotidian, personal and fantastical— to create a visual vocabulary that I used to formalize and structure my compositions.

These objects are photographed on simple black backgrounds, which are separated from the objects for compositing. These negative spaces (cutouts) then reappear in the compositions functioning as voids and patterns that trace back to the photographic and digital process used to create the works.
