The Dante Project
Looking back on my journal entries I realize that being isolated from the outside world I was forced to look more inward. I was searching for a new direction for my work.  I began reading and looking at the numerous works of other artists. William Mortensen, Yutaka Takanashi, Gustave Dore, and William Blake. One quote that particularly spoke to me was by Pierre MacOrlan. “The shadow being the thing itself and its opposite, as well as a disproportionate sign or something’s presence, forces us into another level of perception.  The shadow is known as the king born of shades. It was a major breakthrough, and the dark world of Dante was born.
