below is a small selection of images from 39A (named after an airline seat number), which is a current body of work resulting from time in Germany. the ‘amt‘ series was taken at the ausländerbehörde while awaiting visa processing. ‘konstablerwache‘ was taken in the underground station at that haltestelle. these particular images concentrate on and explore the meditative minimalist color field topography discovered in simple every day scenarios. for example, something as unsuspecting as the edge of a chair seen against the floor below (or in some cases merely the floor itself) can manifest a striking composition and an associated moment of suspension. the ‘mauer‘ series is of the berlin wall. while also simple in composition, for me this series is further propelled by the formal juxtaposition of the weight of the wall to that of the sky. the conceptual contrast of confinement to freedom transcends even its own striking visual effect. as i stood in both late night and early morning scenarios, i found myself gazing to the sky beyond the top of the wall, contemplating just how many others have viewed the same scene, and the myriad of lives, hopes, dreams, and conditions each such moment possessed unto itself.
