Parallel Textures

“All photographs are memento mori. To take a photograph is to participate in another person’s (or thing’s) mortality, vulnerability, mutability. Precisely by slicing out this moment and freezing it, all photographs testify to time’s relentless melt.”
― Susan Sontag

Forked and Forged

“Our world and our state have been transformed, but, in contrast, we as people have not been.”
— Ruth Ann Minner

I enjoy happening upon things like this: random objects collected and saved for some future use. My grandfather was a master collector of such things and they provided an endless source of fascination for a young boy’s imagination. I can’t see something like this without pondering the who, what, when, where and why of it. It’s like looking at a caterpillar without being aware of its ability to be transformed into a beautiful butterfly: your ignorance blinds your understanding of its value.

Abstract in Wood & Rust

Cornered

“I get obsessed by little nerdy things in my corner that no one else is interested in. I have that nerd factor in my character.”
— Björk

This one’s easy: the contrast of color, textures and shadow caught my eye and reeled me in. Enjoy.

Weathered Wood

I like to work a lot with wood. I make furniture that falls apart.
I also sew.

– Tim Conway

I have always been fascinated by the texture and variation of old, weathered wood. It has a character, a soul, that has been developed by the passing of age, harsh conditions and long battles against the forces of nature. It has a history – a story, though I’m not sure words can tell it.
