Untitled Self-Portrait, 2012.

In this diptych, two seemingly unrelated images are brought together to create a single image.  The relationship is dually formalistic and conceptual.  The shape of the long, spiral staircase on the left is reflected in both the round clock and striped garment on the right, creating a visual connection.  The viewer is swept into the image by the railing on the left, then carried up and over to the second image.  The images together comment on the quality of time, as it is both static and infinite.  Like the staircase, it seems to travel forever into the future, yet a photograph captures a single instance on that timeline, as purveyed in the second photograph.
