After a hiatus of about thirty years, and with the encouragement of a friend who was a ceramic sculptor, I began to work in clay. Many of my pieces were heads with holes, cracks, and gaps. A typical title was "More Space than Substance". I was trying to work through my experience that the self was not some solid thing but rather a transient, ever changing process.
Next, I discovered photography and digital image editing. As the above sample indicates, I was now playing with the "world" rather than with the "self". I liked destabilizing perception. The photograph above looks like a typical Hawaiian scene...the lovely, but unoccuppied grounds of a luxury hotel...except the blurred scene between the first and second palm tree trunks makes it look like a fogged window. The momentary confusion causes the viewer to look closer. Whenever the taken-for-granted is disturbed, the soul rises to the surface to inspect. Hopefully my art provokes that response in many viewers.
