Imagine viewing the world as if you had been locked in a chest. When it’s opened you get first impressions of an identity, a subject, or figure as you look “against the light.” You can identify things by prior knowledge, but are left to wonder about the details and substance. Each subject is abstracted without clear identification.

Silhouettes can be a way to explore primary forms, and to remind us we’ll never know everything. Where you might just see the shape of a little girl, I see my sister. Where you see the idea of a street sign, I see the corner of 90th and 90th that I walk by 4 times per week on my way to Brandon’s house. We have only impressions of Truth.
