The Underneath the Sheets series was inspired by the premise of a Westmont College Reynolds Gallery exhibition entitled Interior Spaces. The photographs explore a space that is typically overlooked: those small slow moments of light and color that filter through the sheets. Sheets were moved and lit, but no other visual devices were used to distort their documentation. A decision was made to make the images melt by keeping them out of focus. Without glasses or contacts, this is how I see those little spaces – blurs of light and color that are soft, warm and seductive. This unfocused treatment references the way this space is inhabited and viewed by humans regardless of their visual acuity: in sleep, dream, or drugged seduction. Only two shots include skin in them, however, some of the shapes emulate body parts, which adds another clue to the subject of this series.
