The Suspended Series, 1993 - 1999
The Suspended Series is an investigation into the challenge of presenting a single object in such a way as to see it best. To place an object on a table is to limit its visibility. In suspending things I found I could contemplate them in a new way in terms of an otherwise invisible gesture. It also activated the picture plane in ways that were surprising and gratifying. These images led directly to the Stone Poem series, and, more recently, the Remnants Series.
