Unruly Vegetables Redux
“Unruly Vegetables Redux” is concerned with portraying the "containment of the unruly". This project is an exercise in the use of natural light that evolved into a meditation on relationships, sacrifice, abandonment and the like. My meandering musings in turn began to inform my setups for each frame, metaphorically reflecting my own thoughts on the choices, trials and challenges of human existence and relationship. This, it struck me, was like the moralistic still lifes of the 17th century except with no absolutes, moral judgment or threat of eternal damnation involved, and with a desire to have the viewer construct their own singular narration. I permit my intuition, my sensibility and my desire for craftsmanship to merge in creating an image that offers an unfamiliar way of regarding the familiar.
