Surge posits captured subjects in a darkened cave, surging forward amidst transitional tensions, connected through their uncertainty. Contrasting portraits present the next stage and a glimpse of certainty, as the still life concludes the work by representing the cyclical, inevitable nature of life as it slowly revolves.
