In a Glass Darkly
The sculpture and drawings in the series In a Glass Darkly come from a dream I had, in which aspects of my life were incorporated into the Greek myth of Persephone. Upon waking, I had an understanding of how memory, fighting the inevitable moments of forgetfulness, combines with imagination to divert the implicit sense of loss that comes with the passage of time.
These works explore that understanding through weaving biography and imagination in both images and objects to create a personal, cohesive narrative of the self. The title of this series comes from a scene Nabakov's Pale Fire, in which John Shade has a vision of both life inside and outside his room simultaneously reflected in a window pane.
