I am fascinated by the silhouette and the interaction of shapes and shadows. The being-ness of each object is suggested, however, veiled by the collision of the various shapes. Blacks on blacks combine and the overlay of each layer changes the density of the print, making the image more complex in the places where the silhouettes meet. Pattern shape and form are created that is unrepeatable and unexpected.
