This is a test.. or a series of tests. The image object points towards a confusing relationship and tension that occurs within my work between flattened representation and models which appear to be deeper than they truly are. The creation of relief or a perceived depth awards legitimacy to the illustrated objects as things more than shells.
These object images are thin. Their surfaces may appear deep, but they are deceptive. Trickery is not the overt intent, but as you look more towards my other work you will see that the techniques of creation set out here lend themselves to the projects which followed.
