There is a burning desire to express the inexpressible, a deep need for discovery within the ambiguity of an image. Though it is often a feeble attempt, it is the exact attempt repeated over and over again until, when thought disappears, something special occurs. To guide the viewers direction of thought to a place they did not know existed, ultimately they will discover that they have no need to define what was/is seen. Trying to just occupy the same space and being patient to see where it will go and allowing it to give the image time to unfold. What pulls you in is unknown, but it feels as though it has been there before or always has been.
