 Based on the live piece of the same name, “Twixt” is ephemeral, like the act of creation.  Its protagonists are more than shadows, but less than solid… drawing our attention to the space in between, they illustrate the simplicity of appearing and vanishing. Often the viewer may wonder whether they are looking at the presence or absence of light.
