“Being is always an instance of Being-with. Whatever exists co-exists”1
This project consists of documentary photographs, entitled Alone Together
as well as paintings and drawings based on these images, called New
Work. It was inspired by important, solitary figures from my personal life and
the labor of these close relationships.
Solitude is defined in relation to communion that is absent. There is no one without the
other. I enjoy trying to represent a visual space within this opposition: a togetherness
and separation that doesn’t know how but feels optimistic.
