Stories From the Stone House
I have long been fascinated with myths and folk tales, drawn to the all-too-human darkness that lurks under heroic and magical tales. They express (often unpleasant) truths about human nature without being tied to factual reality, and are widely enough known that their symbols and tropes can be read by many. They simultaneously obfuscate and illuminate.
Here, I aim to evoke a visual language rooted in myth and fairy tale, intending to imply narrative without illustrating specific stories, thus allowing space for viewers to make associations and interpret symbols. And, perhaps, both obfuscate and illuminate.
