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.
