The salient conceptual underpinnings of Reliquary have less to do with its
ostensible subject matter than with the very idea of exploring a world that has
been fabricated at will and from scratch--an equivocal territory that is not merely
described by the artist but constructed in a negotiable collaboration between
artist and viewer. Indeed, these are not simply indistinct representations of
a world that would be rendered more familiar if only the focus were better.
Rather, the absence of an expectant descriptive syntax is a fundamental
property of this world, in much the same way that the absence of linear
narrative is a fundamental property of a dream.
