Reaching out for things that can't be touched, holding on to moments already passed—we try to find something that endures within the constant change.

Unfathoming is an exhibition of works that pivot between what can be seen and what is hidden from view; between possibilities and limitations; what we can know and what remains unknowable.  Objects fold in on themselves, giving shape to their absence; a photograph turned from view hides what the image shows and shows what the image can't; marks overlaid on paper accumulate into an impenetrable density; and a video embodies an impossible desire for contact and connection across time and technology.
