Transience

Whether directly involved or as an observer, I enjoy encounters and making references to moments where individuals have come together and are sharing spaces. 

 

‘Transience’, is an image based on a moment of interaction.  The shared moment reflects the placement of value and support.  As the figures appear to communicate, sharing a moment, the composition is intended to encourage viewers to feel less of an observer and more as a participant, merging and completing the gathering.  

Importantly, for me, an aesthetic experience lies somewhere between these integral components: the work, the audience and the encounter. Interestingly, each of these components, and even the memories of them, are at times short lived, impermanent, quickly passed over.
