Untitled (fern) from the series, Hide the Sun, 2017



16x20" image printed on 17x22" archival pigment paper. Edition of 10. Also available at a larger size in edition of 7-please inquire. Hide the Sun, illustrates a landscape of personal reflection and contemplation on the dualities in life. While sunlight is absorbed by dark backgrounds during the day and absent at night, the color yellow flows through the series providing a simulated source of illumination. Yellow is the most visible color of the spectrum. Next to black, it appears brighter than white. Yellow is associated with enlightenment and optimism but also caution. In the photographs, flowers bloom and ferns unfurl in continuous renewal, while hands reach out in longing and people freeze in melancholic thoughts. Trees and branches break, dying a sculptural death, more beautiful than when they were whole. Nature feels displaced in the dark night, artificially lit by the flash, presented as evidence. Shadows have more presence than the objects that cast them. The flowers that bloom in the summer don’t last as long as I hope, while the tree that split apart years ago still stands outside my window.
