The Matrix – 2012

The “Dark Light Vision” series explores what was often suppressed in the official history of Surrealism, or what has been rightly termed by art critic Hal Foster “compulsive beauty.” Repetition and seriality perform the necessary rites of passage in the compound images (composed of hundreds of rubber-stamped smaller images), approaching that dark threshold in art that invokes fascination with unavoidable psychic and emotional phenomenon underlying and underwriting human consciousness proper.
