Entry Description

The “Etched In Time” series is a definitive study of an urban environment comprising multiple images layered over one another, giving the impression of a fine, delicate pencil drawing or metal etching. Each “Etching” deconstructs a city environment, replacing form and structure with the ebb and flow of movement, reducing a city's rigid formalism into a metaphysical yet poetic mutability, leaving the viewer with a deep perspective and a sometimes unnerving view. The bustle of the fragile, ghostly figures, intently focused on multi faceted lives, question whether we are losing our identity in a world where we humans are constantly chasing and trying to keep up with technology.
