Artist statement for the "In view and out" project (2018)

People play psychological games; they reveal and hide themselves using a curtain of flesh and text. Likewise, during art-making some things are included in the image, others are left out or implied to exist beyond the frame. In both, there is a dichotomy of inside versus outside, on view versus hidden, and definite versus implied. As we never know what others have hidden from us, or what is the true meaning of what they reveal, we can never fully understand what an-other meant by an image or truly grasp our personal interactions. Ambiguity and doubt forever frame us, especially now as we increasingly interact via screens.

This set of digitally created drawings use pictorial space to interrogate this psychological landscape of uncertainty, in view versus hidden, and potential isolation.
