Curator’s Comments:

 

This is an ‘Intriguing Landscape’!  I really respond to the unique mixture of media- the photographic inclusions are beautifully married with the other hand worked materials, creating a clandestine or primordial landscape.  There is an elemental quality that draws light from darkness; the brown articulated mass at the bottom has a muddy/ earthen grittiness suggesting deep excavation.   I find the long sinuous shape protruding from the center to be inexplicable and mysterious.  It seems to be reaching up from the underground/underworld space into an idyllic stormy sky.  The heavenly blues and pinkish orange strata could be interpreted as hopeful or foreboding.   It recalls “axis mundi”- a cosmic axis point, or mythological pole connecting two realms.  I see galactic references in many of your other pieces- Nebulae in the Mind, Galaxies of Probabilities, etc.  But I personally find the anchoring of the cosmic imagery to more ordinary topography only serves to highlight by contrast the glory of the immense celestial expanse.
