About Hierophany:

hiero: the sacred
phany: appearance

Contemplating the ‘space in-between’ is a theme to which I’ve returned for many years. For me, the dynamic place where things overlap – where the boundaries are blurred – is where the divine sometimes shows itself and where creativity is born.

Someone very dear to me was recently plunged into one of these liminal realms as the result of a coma, so for a time late last summer the concept of a place between worlds was especially on my mind. The images in ‘Hierophany’ were shot at Rice Lake this past September after a day of walking in the forest for hours, trying to come to terms with the fate of my friend.

Our long dry summer had left the lake uncommonly low – exposing a boarder of natural forms rarely seen, and offering the perfect metaphor for that ‘space in-between’.

Miraculously, my friend Georgia has resurfaced and is much recovered. This exhibition is dedicated to her, with my gratitude for having been led to find so many hidden things revealed.
