With this series of work the subject matter is derived from direct experiences in the forest. The work starts with photographs which are brought into the studio. After long periods of contemplation and percolation, semblances of facial anatomy begin to emerge and appear. The series relies on a distinct use of frontal bilateral symmetry in conjuring these ethereal beings. Since I can remember I have been seeing faces and images where none exist. I can’t seem to help myself ( a condition associated with apophenia). I am self diagnosed.
