Allenby Garden presents a sample of objects and moments from the artist's life. While a seemingly haphazard assortment, a closer reading suggests a compelling, impressionistic narrative, with each image capturing not a static cross-section of the artist's life, but a definitive moment of change and transition: still-wet spray paint; the artist leaving a room or dangling precariously over a water heater; a view from the bottom of a ladder, yet to be climbed; the likeness of a pig's head, melting onto the table and disappearing; a pattern of flattened boxes, which, we must imagine, will be filled.  The images reveal the seamless and imperceptible arc of events that comprise a human life, captured in still frames and at intervals defined by something more fundamental than the linear arrow of time.
