Métro from the Kaleidoscope series

I've been slightly obsessed with the dark public spaces of subways for a few years now. The Parisian métro stations particularly intrigue me in their contrasts. They are at once beautifully designed with specific color palettes, but at the same time dark and make me slightly uneasy. The metro stop is everchanging. People meld together, coming in and out of view. The walls often change with the people. But the spatial structure is finite and enclosed. One has a choice to go one way or another into the vast empty darkness ahead.

Kaleidoscope, Series One

The chance meeting of an image repeated within itself creates its own story steeped in visual symmetry and a flatness of overhead perspective that is at once linear, intentional, but enmeshed with a sense of chance and coincidence. These images reside in public spaces. Palettes are everchanging. They are littered with sporadic color.

For the record, I'm not someone who likes to overexplain my work. Nor do I really want to intellectualize my work in order to justify its meaning to anyone. I'm not saying that the meaning isn't there. I would just prefer you find it on your own and take from it what ever you want. So begin with this image of one of my favorite meals in Paris.
