Imaginary Friends

A recent portrait series, Imaginary Friends, is about longing. The studio offers precious time for a private exploration and search for the physical manifestation of one’s inexpressible, incoherent, illogical congress of thoughts and emotions. Facial characteristics that suggest age, gender, emotion, and history appear and disappear as choices define the journey toward an image and decisions eliminate options. Friends and foes, real and imagined, are safely tamed in a frozen gesture of heated, hardened earth. Only the studio supports this solitary illusion of stability if not mastery in human relationships.
