On Shadows part 2

In these images the shadow represents the object that creates it, but its also has its own unique qualities such as emptiness. There are no clues that tell us about the hidden surfaces within it, nonetheless it is a force of attraction. It is the one great variable in a seemingly fixed and epistemically stable Landscape. It is a creative act of a profane object, the visibility of which I concern myself.

‘The visible has a layer of invisibility about which the artist concerns himself’

Maurice Merleau-Ponty,The Primacy of Perception.
