Opening Reception - Friday, January 11th, 5pm - 9pm
Our vision shifts as light diminishes and this changes what we see and how we see it. As vision shifts our ability to quickly and comfortably scan our surroundings changes our sense of ease and comfort enough that we can experience a sense of heightened awareness as our brains seek a sense of comfort and safety. Our imaginations effect our sense of surroundings and emotion often plays a bigger role in our attachment to the things we see.
My interest in night visions is subtle. I’m interested in how our brains start us down imaginitive paths at night that we might never consider in broad daylight. I try to open emotional doors but not tell you where to go. When we feel safe and secure this can be a comforting experience that pleasantly dramatizes the limitations of our perception. All of what we think we see is in our heads and this is of course the beginnings for all of my art.
