A chuppah (Jewish wedding canopy) refers to a “covering” that symbolizes the home and life that a couple will make together. Because of my initial experience in which I created the chuppah featured here on my website, the idea of printing my black and white infrared photographic images on translucent silky fabric has intrigued me. I find myself attracted to the fluidity of the printed cloth as well as to the otherworldly and three-dimensional quality that this type of work possesses. These supple pieces demonstrate anew my connection to the landscape and the images I produce. They explore the perceptual intersection of the visual with a tactile and fluid substratum.
