Sherry Erskine's avatar Sherry Erskine Vote Code: 67767

The Atone • A Tone • At One Series represents an ongoing theoretical and contextual investigation of the intersection of metaphysics, the natural world and surrealism through lens-based media and performative self-portraiture. The experience of numinosity, or the vague impression of forces greater than one’s self, is at the heart of this work photographed along Route 1 in Iceland. Chosen sites become liminal spaces where psyche and cosmos intersect; void meets light; formlessness meets form; and matter becomes energy to profoundly illuminate my understanding of subconscious binary tensions. Digital manipulation of multiple mirrored images of myself in this location reveal an ethereal being frozen beyond time and space. Uncanny yet explicit, these photographs present fleeting moments of atonement with my embeddedness in existence. ‘Life is a luminous pause between two great mysteries, which are yet one.’ – Carl Jung
