Of her work, artist Angela Sairaf writes, “Consciousness is the key to escape geographical confinement. When one has no place, but permeates the Universe, the concepts of near and far away disappear.” Sairaf’s pictures seem at the same time vastly open and unsettlingly confining. There’s an abstract quality to several of the pictures, and I can’t quite orient myself in them. The fog and snow depicted are quieting, like a boundary that’s penetrable but mysterious. The series, entitled now + here = nowhere, speaks of boundaries and boundlessness, using what I think of as one of the strangest of the ordinary weather conditions to describe nature’s ability to mystify.
