VEILED / UNVEILED

A portrait is by turns a layering and a peeling away— a chiaroscuro of form and shadow, memory and history in a play between obscurity and clarity, a shift of shapes.
Layers veil and unveil what is noticed, or unnoticed but simply sensed. The reading of a face as depicted in sculpture reveals its complexity as the relationship between viewer and viewed changes, and deepens through time into intimacy.
