Visible Hemispheres

The title for the Visible Hemispheres series was suggested by an old engraving  of the known lunar surface that points out the meridian of contact between the visible and invisible hemispheres of the moon. The printed page can only portray the visible hemisphere: it is what we can see illuminated. The other half of this familiar sphere remains a mystery. Yet the visible hemisphere can bring our attention to reach beyond immediate circumstance, to expand to include that other, shadow twin. These works are part of a series of dialogues with material and form to find out what such an experience could look like. They remain, fundamentally, empty pages.
