STATEMENT OF WORK

The Dark Wood

The imagery of The Dark Wood— a frozen gorge in winter; a collection of abandoned casts of

ancient Greco-Roman sculpture; the ancient trees of the Pacific Coast—brings human experience

in parallel with natural phenomena. How do history and the construction of knowledge mirror

the flow and stasis of the natural world? What is our agency in light of constant change? How

do shifting ideas of “truth” and “authenticity” inform our narratives about the world and

ourselves? Through the stillness of looking, the photographs in The Dark Wood reveal common

cycles that are contained within personal, cultural, and natural histories.
