About this piece:
With Certain Ambiguity began as an urge to communicate with a group of individuals whom I felt were unable to understand the perspective in which I saw the world. With what I felt were blinded assumptions and clouded, shadowed views, I created imagery that was hidden as if being viewed through a blindfold. The blindfold represents classism, racism, bias and naivety. The images are ambiguous, leaving interpretations open to the lenses through which each viewer typically sees the world.
The goal of With Certain Ambiguity is to create an open dialogue with the artist as well as other viewers. The text, printed with letterpress, speaks to the willingness of the viewer to view content – and experiences – through a lens or blindfold that may appear differently from their own. Each image was printed using the non-silver printmaking process Vandyke Brown on handmade paper made from Sisal fibers from Kenya.
