Modern Zoo – Portland, OR
July 12 – August 31, 2003
When I think of a city, it often conjures ideas of hurried people, streets crowded with traffic, and constant noise. For this body of work, I wanted to try and remove such chaos from the picture, showing things as simply as possible. In doing so, I realized I had been left with an unusual sort of emptiness and silence. The lack of noise was deafening, and I was haunted by the people who should have been there, but weren’t. It reminded me again that nothing is ever truly quiet.
