My recent work records encounters between constructions that incorporate hard drives that stored my images, and vintage figures that I have collected. The silhouettes and shadows of these figures, against the grain of the painted drives, fascinate me. This limited palette work draws on the ambivalence of Noir movies, their sense of inescapable destiny combined with momentary optimism. The faces of these figures – some which can be read with determination or despair – draws me into their world, which is my world: bathed in the golden glow of the sun, or caught in amber for all time.
