Underlying our desire to communicate authentically we can consider artworks to be able to present ambiguous and complex elements from our unconscious, going far beyond the precision of verbal communication. As we each examine the areas of significance in our own lives, the symbolic and conceptual references in our art help place our individual experiences into a context that is more universally understood.
The Conversation Series explores the spaces between two minds, our human limitations and those of language when discussing big topics. I began with the dark, negative space between the two minds then used an interplay of depth, flat graphics, and ambiguous overlay of positive and negative spaces to convey the varying complexity of communications we have everyday.
