The beauty of our world is due to the unpredictability of growth, no matter where we encounter it, and the energy from this growth is a force that moves outward. The photomontage compositions in “Radiance” are attempts to replicate this energy with implied circular movement and pieces bursting out from the radial form. For me the most interesting aspect of the “Radiance” series lies in the varying degrees of control I don’t have. While the compositions are created using photographic materials and a consistent process, the combination of images, editing and placement lead to visually irregular structures and results.
