Human Bondage I

Awakening

 

Seeking

A breaking light… spread(ing)… pale sorrows and the fragrance … a mood of quiet joy

From “A Portrait of the Artist as a Young  Man”

 

EXPRESSION

Expression Series

Here, the pieces have more expressionist touch, where I will be expressing my emotions and thoughts. These pieces would most likely be staged photos, with individual names.

Seeking is another  series I am working on.  Here, I am contemplating the roles of emotions played on thoughts formulated.

California Dreaming

“California Dreaming” is the series I am working on extensively lately.  It started with the question of what makes people feel connected to a place, to nature, and to the world.  It seems that we feel connected to something if it responds to our views, ideas, or to our “dreams”.  But there is only one world.  So, are there commonalities in our dreams?  This is what I am trying to explore in this series.

A Fantastical Dream

“The seen, the unseen.  What is here, what is there.  What is here, what was here, and what will be here.  My dream, your dream, and our dreams.“

INVESTIGATION

Investigation Series

Here, I will most likely be emotional neutral, and ask the viewers to investigate the psychological and emotional impacts the images will generate.  They are most likely processed snap shots from my daily life.

Investigation 1

Investigation 2

Investigation 3

 

There are some cross over pieces where I am expressing my thoughts and emotions, but also inviting viewers’ own interpretations.
