In explores my fascination with confinement and the confined person's means of psychological escape. My aim is to recreate the anxious back-and-forth tension between imprisonment and freedom. Whether trapped in your own body by illness or paralysis, imprisoned by the police or kidnappers, in hiding for your own protection, or self-confined for spiritual purposes, this sense of claustrophobia and immobility is rich with both suffering and imaginative possibilities. The fantasies concocted by those in confinement represent the extremes of freedom, from flying through outer space to gaining extraordinary magical powers. The prisoner is an archetype familiar to everyone, and is represented in fairy tales and myths going back thousands of years; almost everyone has experienced the sense of being metaphorically trapped, unable to escape their social position, their responsibilities and fixed identity. The creative, generative powers of imagination are a source of hope, but ultimately reference the imaginer's confinement, anchoring these utopian fantasies in a real sense of despair.
