Common in my imagery and concepts is an absence for which I have adopted the term ‘lacuna’, a word which defines a missing section. The lacuna manifests in my work as a gap which becomes a threshold for the known exterior and the unknown interior. This threshold can also be drawn between signs of activity, such as smoke or light, and their unknown sources. I have found this state of intermission echoed in Albert Camus’ 1942 essay The Myth of Sisyphus. Within his essay Camus described a paradox which he termed the Absurd: a conflict of the human compulsion to find meaning in life and the impossibility of finding it with certainty. I believe the search itself - the constant questioning and exploration – can provide purpose. Throughout my imagery the depictions of chasms, PODs and unseen interiors represent this anticipation in the face of uncertainty. My research into the Lacuna leads me to embrace this state of the unknown, exploring aspects of the uncanny as well as the threshold of perception between expectation and the non-predictable. In my work I hope that the viewer questions, and I hope this questioning is triggered by feelings of wonderment, or anticipation, or perhaps even apprehension as they encounter the Lacuna.
