The  process  of  achieving  intimacy  is  irregular,  uneven,  and  challenging,  but  overcoming these  obstacles  is  rewarding  and  encouraging.    Progress  is  made  and  intimacy  is  heightened  as we  navigate  these  disparate  landscapes;  balance  is  improved. La  Falta  is  a  series  of  eight photographic  collages  that  explore  the  complexities  of  intimacy.   A  certain  tension  and vulnerability  exists  in  the  work  and  within  each  image  a  consistently  broken  or  folded  horizon

appears.  This  tension arises  from  visually  bringing  two  conceptually  unlike  things  together  into one  context-­‐  the  intangible  horizon  and  the  physical  manipulation  of  the  print.  These ‘composite  pieces’  are  complex,  which  is  not  to  say  that  they  are  not  productive.  Differences  do not  translate  into  opposition  but  rather  can  become  intersections  where  two  individuals

can work  towards  ‘togetherness’.  The  horizon  is  a  place  that  is  desired  but  never  quite  reached;  it always  rests  on  the  edge  of  our  vision.    However,

within  the  images,  when  the  horizon  is removed  or  absent,  it  becomes  integral  to  the  formal  composition  of  the  image. The  newly constructed  horizons,  with their sharp  angles  and  ruptured  lines,  create  a  new  landscape,  both

formally  and  conceptually.  Intentionally  leaving  the  altering  techniques  visible, reinforce  the importance  of  process,  both  within  art  making  and intimacy.
