Colors swirl, metal wires are entangled, portions of objects and paintings float and hover, and mysterious images emerge. “The Discomfort of Not Knowing” is a collection which plays with our human tendency to want to make sense of things, to seek out the representational amongst the non-objective and abstract. At a young age we are taught to find representational objects in abstract forms, and naturally tend to do it. I am interested in this process of trying to make sense of things. I think it’s a metaphor for how one may try to seek to understand happenings in one’s own life. The abstract and the non-objective are uncomfortable. In these photographs, the focus is on the object composition while also reiterating the frame.
