"The acts of making and understanding have always been closely linked, expanding our cognitive boundaries with their relational dialogue. However, the strongest governing concepts within our awareness, time and space, remain elusive. Outside the realm of our control and understanding, time and space can only be arbitrarily measured and contextualized, which has lead to these ideas becoming purely linear and causal.
With this body of work, I endeavor to find new, allegorical modes for addressing the nonlinear possibilities of time and space. Utilizing the pictorial tradition of landscape as "space" and my studio practice as "time", I aim to create a kind of haptic feedback loop within these pieces. Imagery is crosspollinated between works; old prints are cannibalized and amalgamated into the new; ideas expand and collapse endlessly. Within the realization that none of these works can empirically demonstrate the essence of space or time lies their purpose: the ineffable can only be glimpsed in the reflections cast by our failures." -Dunigan
