About the "Transition" Series
As individuals, we are all in a constant state of change or transition. Some of our daily transitions are quite mundane, such as from hungry to fed, sleeping to waking, sitting to standing. However, many of our transitions are quite significant even though we are not even aware of them the moment they occur. Examples of these more profound transitions we experience are the transition from friendship to love, from spouse to father or mother, from health to illness or the reverse. Often we are conscious that a transition has occurred only after the fact. It is as if we live our lives through a rear view mirror, always trying to catch up to what has already transpired. Most importantly, transitions guarantee that life won't be smooth, but nonetheless will provide richness to how we can experience it.
When we realize one of life's transitions has occurred, we may be momentarily shocked or frozen as we try to regain our emotional balance. Likewise, in this Transition Series, I present the viewer with a frozen transitional moment. The field may be about to overtake the forms or the forms might be about to break through the field. The forms may also give the illusion of gathering together or they may be pushing further away from each other. Visually, as in life, only the next moment will reveal what transition has actually taken place.
Our curiosity doesn't end with technology. We are a diverse group that raises the bar when it comes to self-expression. Our goal is to stay at the forefront of innovation and that expands outside of technology advancements.
