Place and Perspective

First Commissions inspired by Self Portrait with Monkeys: divulge an unattainable desire.

Artist Statement

Place and Perspective (composed in two parts respectively) explores what it is to experience loss. Place navigates how it feels to be absorbed in loss and the longing for the impossible restoration of how things were. Perspective provides a moment for internal reflection. Moving past the chaos of loss, there is an opportunity to ponder your current position, where you have been and where you are going.
