The artist writes, “What began as a photo documentary became a canvas of suggestion. As Roland Barthes wrote in Camera Lucida, there is a punctum, a part of the image that prick the viewer and makes a lasting impact. While creating this work my punctum was this underlying tension created by color, texture and underlying tension created by the division of space, the repetition of smooth broken by rough, or of wall meeting ground. Nothing is explicit, everything is implied. The time, the place the people. You can feel them hovering.”
