World Without End Series
After removing all of the pictorial elements except the sky from a series of antique postcards, I altered the remaining space, inserting universal forms that might evoke the continual return of the world, even after familiar surfaces and scenic views have been stripped away.
In making these works, I was thinking about early Twentieth Century artists like Kazimir Malevich and others who explored ideas about infinity and the fourth dimension by paradoxically working on a two-dimensional surface. Their search assumed that the three-dimensional space we take for granted in everyday life could not lead us to the fourth dimension. Rather, the third dimension and its illusionistic pictorial elements must be subverted in order to provide a clearer view of dimensions that lie beyond our understanding.
