The Event

Although this series of 10 watercolor images have nothing to do with one another when viewed independently, I aim to bring them together through the exploration of ideas of narratives and the ways in which they are subconsciously constructed within the mind of a viewer. Often, if the images are arranged in a continuous, evenly spaced manner, the narrative created is that of a linear nature and generally perceived as happening on a consistent timeline. Interestingly, a new narrative can be created solely upon the re-arrangement of those images. If for example, the works are separated, and grouped in clusters, another kind of narrative develops, one in which the timeline seems to be divided up into a  series of separate events, happening at different, more spread out, time intervals.
