Phalangeal Mindscapes

Artist Statement

The focus of Phalangeal Mindscapes is an attempt to move much deeper into the wonders of hands. In this series, each piece explores different ways to break the mold of a hand’s individual use and appearance in attempt to highlight the environmental aspects of their shape. These works extend the formal characteristics of hands and their use through components of light, scale and perspective in order to submerge the viewer into a different world. With visual elements of contrasting color values and magnified imagery, the scale manipulates and expands the hands into environments of abstract form. These environments subjectively become entrances to cavernous areas of stalactites, mountains or even representations of texturized materials like tree bark, leather and plastic.
