The perception of appearance is the subject of my work. I am interested in the appeal of beauty, but also in creating a sense of discomfort and confusion.
Quiet Chaos is one of a series in which images are blurred or distorted so their true nature is hidden. As in the phenomenon of normalcy bias, the actual nature of what is occurring is unaddressed, or glossed over. In this case, the street scene that was blurred is unrecognizable as something more violent or chaotic. /
