The world is continually being disclosed to us but never quite completely. The more we understand, the more complex we find it to be. There is a certain resistance on the part of the world to our knowing it. I am interested in this resistance, finding the gaps between what we know and what we can't and holding those gaps open for a while.

In spite of our ability to explain the natural world, there is still a certain mystery to how matter changes form, seeming at first to be one thing, then becoming another. Light things become dark, soft things become hard, solid things begin to flow. Such transformations open onto questions of our own being and becoming and how we find ourselves in a world of flux. Seeing simple mysteries of matter in the elements of earth, water and fire, may remind us that the universe is an amazing place, a source of wonder.
