Passage by claralieu Passage by claralieu
Digging is an act which represents a wide range of topics, including excavation, history, burial, growth, and construction. In this project, I viewed digging as a metaphor for a search. Our compulsion to search and dig on both a literal and metaphorical level is a constant imperative which we experience daily. These searches occur on many levels, from short searches for material items to life long searches for desired states of mind. In these images, I aim to create a sense of ambiguity in the figures so that they could represent any of these themes.

This monotype is printed on Rives BFK paper, measures 24" x 36", and was executed in 2004.

Your work is so captivating but conjures not only a sense of isolation but a primal fear as well, much like a nightmare. The kind of nightmare that is so consuming that more afraid we become, the less capable we are to wake from it.
