False Walls

False Walls is a series of digital photo-based pigment prints exploring boundaries, edges, and thresholds that hover between awareness and the subliminal. Stripes or bands of color serve as a veil, a cloak, a threshold, the limen.  The work becomes a rear-view, of what’s behind, what is barely visible.
