I made this installation for Blind Alley’s Liminal Space series in Summer 2022.
I was interested in how the inside and outside of Blind Alley interact. The spaces are separate, but the reflective window ensures that whatever is inside can only be seen through overlaid views of what’s outside. This “both/and” quality led me to create hierarchies of privacy with layers of netting, glass, canvas, and marks. The drawings allude to the landscape around the property, around Fort Worth, and from my personal history. That history is at the heart of this installation, but it remains hidden – a negotiation that mirrors the dynamics of the space. The dual imagery – sky and cloud, ground, and plant, dark and light– reflect my own inward and outward facing stances as an artist.
