About this Artwork
This artwork comes from a series of divergent strategies. One of building and extending - the other of reducing and minimizing.
These disparate approaches are not a way to impose meanings on the work, but can be viewed as a metaphoric crossroads.
This crossroads is about extending the relationship of these different approaches, while at the same time allowing the viewer the liberty of time for further reading of the work.
The image making that comes from this strategic foundation will be clear, concise and rational, while at the same time allowing for a sense of community and/or contemplation to develop in and around the artworks.
