Here are a few images from my Sleeping Man Series, a print project in 5 parts:

Part 1 : original photograph of a prone man in a bed in a pink room
Part 2 : grid of this image : digital Gicle print 29.5x41.5”
Part 3 : compartments : digital Gicle print 29.5x41.5”
Part 4 : individual scenes (15 --- 8 are shown here) Each is a Digital Gicle print on 30 x22 “ Arches.
Part 5 : constructions (25 --- a few are shown here) - varying dimensions - largest 12”x14”x12”, smallest 2.5"x3.5". Originally comprise a small town on a grid. (shown in several configurations since.)


This work is about possibility. The sleeping man is a symbol of vulnerability. He is immobile and inert, susceptible to being fed off of to create meaning. The prints and constructions also consider the nature of being apart from a person and experiencing them through the disarray of memory.
