This installation of four-inch square panels is about the way I perceive my own life as a sequence of small, intimate, non-linear but interrelated moments. It’s about wanting to hold and understand the infinite by containing it in a palm-sized space. The installation is comprised of a sequence rather than a series of images; instead of variations of a single image, the panels depict inter-related unique images intended for reading like lines in a poem. I use the multi-layered glazing technique of the Flemish Old Masters to create illusionistic space that is as much about its reflective surface as it is about its content. The strict definition of dimension and placement of panels is used to address ideas about mathematical precision, the measured, mapped, and ordered and its complex relationship with the immeasurable aspects of fluid time.
