The Height of Heaven positions the artist in a state of post-intimacy, examining the transitional state of remnants and remains of intimate encounters and considering the implication of haptics on liminal spaces. Rooted in the action of generating visual tangibility, the photographs act as documents of the marks which no longer remain in these space-times, reaching for a sense of permanence.
The body’s ability to give and receive touch and to inform a space through movement and gesture is difficult to encapsulate in immediacy or singularity, a photograph. The ecstasy of an encounter leaves marks and shapes how we view an initial touch or feeling. These works reconstruct that initial feeling which has already passed, but can still be felt and sensed in space. Hands leave traces, giving permanence.
