Life Stand Still Here

Life Stand Still Here explores internal dialogues and moments when life and its darkest facets can offer monumental symbolism. Inspired by the writings of Virginia Woolf, I am interested in the elusive abstract space within us that defines the core of our psyche. Many people accept the idea that each of us has a certain resolute innerness—a core of selfhood that we can’t share with others because it is so private, internalized and visceral. I’m drawn to this ambiguous, sometimes painful inner darkness, not the kind that is perverse, but the kind that feels unknown and is, by default, frightening. Through a variety of image-making techniques, viewers can find an entry point into my deepest self—my interest is in opening the interplay between their histories and mine, a kind of dark mirroring that makes visible our shared psychic struggles.
