  • The Wait is about longing, waiting for something to come. Something undefined, unknown. There must be more than the everyday, more than the visible: a place to exist, someone to come, visions of happiness, and a possibility of expectations to fulfill.

    To wait for something to unveil: something unmet, elusive. To envisage happenings that may never occur. To anticipate and to be prepared. To stay in place and to be present.

    In stillness there is always a premise for something to happen, a narrative straining to emerge. Naïve expectations but sincere. There must be more. If not, then at least there is the longing, the wait.
