BEYOND THE VEIL

Archival Pigment Prints and Single Channel Video

Beyond the Veil is a body of work that includes a series of photographic performances and video installation. The work explores obscured bodily gestures through the use of vivid color, seductive shape, and ephemeral form. Immateriality and camouflage within the immense and varied landscapes of southwestern Sweden evolve into a mythology of inexplicable moments that both reveal and conceal. To exist beyond the veil conjures a mysterious and hidden state of knowing and the unknown. The imagery in this project was made in collaboration with artist Samantha Albert, and has been exhibited in dialogue with Albert's like-minded sculpture.
