of the garden

Inspired by myths of Eden of the Garden constructs a new reality through light in a 3 color separation process. Through the deception of color in this process these landscapes that were captured along the US - Mexico border challenge the viewer to question the means of representation and the notion of truth as an unfixed reality. Referencing the pastoral and its mood of longing and nostalgia, this work questions what it means for paradise to be a walled garden. Reality becomes corrupted through the separations, just as the landscape has been corrupted through geopolitical tensions.
