Thank you very much for offering your very personal insights into the process and content of your work. I couldn't see the image clearly enough on my screen to make out the lungs in Number Nineteen, but I did get a sense of one organic form intruding on the other. There is a raw energy and foreboding that guides my reaction, but as you say, they are ambiguous enough to allow for multiple interpretations.
I keep returning to this work, being drawn to what appears to be a saturated heart of darkness. The luminous crimson red is the implied origin of the glow emanating from the center, framed by delicately stenciled leaves. The foliage adds a natural but foreboding motif, as it envelops an organic figurative shape. I like the permutation of values that play between the interior cavernous space and exterior boundaries. The dreamlike passages are disquieting, but draw me in. The photogram process seems to be intentionally underplayed or diffused- I don’t discern an overriding presence of a stencil, and so the technical aspect doesn’t rise to the forefront of my visual experience. There is an x-ray quality, but it seems to be manipulated beyond its original representation, and maintains a ghost like presence throughout all of the works you’ve posted. Number Nineteen is also an alluring piece. The sweeping yellow orange texture implies living hair or fur, while the crystalline structure of the plant in the foreground provides a static counterpoint to the swirling movement. There is an image of a sort of tag in the upper right corner that’s difficult to decipher. And so I’m left wondering if there is content between the layers of imagery, or if I’m simply meant to experience the pleasurable concurrence of organic form.
