The Novella

A sample of printed paired images arranged in specific sequence in a block, from my Caustic Optimism project.

Combining 10 or more paired “short story” singles into a larger body of work raises the level of visual impact and expands the narrative possibility.

On the surface, each block is entirely open to viewer interpretation. However, the order of the images in each case is actually my visual translation of a text excerpt (usually from a poem, essay or meditation). The result for each piece is a formal grid composition of seemingly random images. That a message is encoded within the composition simply offers another level of depth and connection.
