About Keeping an Eye on the Invisible: Invisible Territories
From the series: Keeping an Eye on the Invisible, this book is a partial collection of small landscapes I make from fragments I collect from my garden and travels. I collect and use these images as resources for my paintings. This is a new way of investigating the intricacies of landscape for me. These glass slides/images are often projected on the wall as installations, made into large format photos, or used an installation for larger works. 12 x 10 x 5 inches accordion folded glass mounted inserts of specimens on book board with Stonehenge paper. Presented in a clamshell box.
