Our ability to think clearly, critically and creatively is largely dependent on our will to create space for these processes to occur.In this world of over-saturated, in your face, and instantaneous image gratification, it is sometimes difficult to break away and separate our senses from the constant bombardment that we are assaulted with on a daily basis. What used to be a quiet country road is now a super-highway, blasting a never-ending pitch for the next restaurant, hotel, fast food chain, attorney or religious prophecy. Spontaneous information and visual overload instantly materialize, stalking us at the push of a button, on gas pumps, in bathrooms, on the road, in our pockets.


We no longer choose when and what content we care to view and absorb. It is forced upon us.“Solace of Space” is an ongoing series of work in an attempt to create spaces of comfort and solitude, void of the constant visual noise that we encounter every day. These images are suggestive of something familiar, but instead, they could be anywhere, at any time — dreamlike images inviting you to a place of private wonder.You find yourself searching for just the right caption, but it’s just outside your reach.


What you are left with are visceral emotions, responding to color, light, texture and movement, creating a sense of tranquility and space —

the Solace of Space. Enjoy!
