“These enigmatic images hover between objects in Putnam’s studio, nature, and the figure, offering an otherworldly vision embedded in the everyday. Often these quiet moments seem to intrude on what, at first glance, appears to be an intensely mysterious and interior investigation. The works can be perceived as individual images, or as part of a larger work, where imagery fragments and repeats, echoing themes that Putnam has investigated throughout his work. Looking and then relooking becomes mandatory as memory itself comes into question.”
