Visual perception i.e. Interpreting and understanding what we see, is thought to consist of 80% memory and 20% input through the eyes. I explore this estimation in my work by offering the viewer depictions or suggestions of imagery, which lead the viewer into his or her own interpretation of what is represented.
The aim of the work is to create pictorial spaces, which toy with the viewer’s impulse to believe in them. The fictional compositions hold a tension between reality and fantasy. Anonymity prevails; distancing the viewer from reality, yet the work is strangely evocative of places we sense we might know.
