Artist Statement:
Sarah came to visit me in my studio one day and she was carrying some folded boxes under her arm. I asked her what they were for, and she told me that she was moving out of her place, and also ending her marriage. This triggered a long, cathartic and very personal conversation about relationships and our shared experiences. It set the foundation of our friendship, and also the inspiration for the photograph Sarah, David. This piece is part of the body of work entitled Archipelago (2004-in progress), in which I explore relationships and their boundaries. My work focuses on what happens between the represented figures, and it understands the physical spaces where such interactions take place as a psychological extension of the characters.
