white threshold

This set of images represent a re-interpretation of the opening phrases of Jean-Luc Nancy’s essay “On the Threshold,” from his text The Muses. Nancy examines a painting by Caravaggio, “The Death of the Virgin,” (1605-6) and utilizes the complex spaces, colors and forms of this work to explore ideas of the relationship of viewer to image.

I have chosen to do this transcription in white with tones of grey, in order to examine this in-between space, this threshold.

One thought on “white threshold

  1. poetic and beautiful…The contrast of the simple line drawing , rubber stamp text and the tatooed petal, is yummy and most satisfying.
