Description

DOUBLE VISION When I was a kid riding in the back seat of the family car, I’d watch the side of the road and by closing one eye, would align the bottom of the window with the rush of horizontals speeding past. The fence tops, walls and guard rails formed an oscillating line that danced with the fixed horizon of the window frame. For me, this was close enough to the infinity of pure LINE, the ideal construct described in my geometry schoolbooks. Once introduced to the iconic shapes and solids in those books, I saw them everywhere, mental templates to be superimposed on any scene. The overlay of geometric ideals transformed a baseball into the perfect sphere, a building block into the flawless cube. The DOUBLE VISION pictures celebrate this play between intellectual and perceptual knowledge, the flickering between memory and observation, the blend of mystery and delight when truth and truth disagree.
