> DESCRIPTION

 

 

 

 

intensity, overwhelming and vivid,

bearing mysterious meanings and associations.

glowing with a hallucinatory energy.

desiring an increase in our normal perceptions,

a libidinal intensification of our normally humdrum and familiar surroundings

The photographs in the exhibition Bright Branches document found objects collected from the alleys and junk stores of Chicago. The discarded objects our everyday environments are formally arranged into images that question how we construct meaning. Playing with absurdity and desire in the aesthetic qualities of objects, these images engage with an immediacy of visual presence, while at the same time provoking an extended viewing in order to unravel new potential meanings.
