Central to Field’s work is a fascination with a dreamlike unreality where contiguity becomes the reigning principle. In this dream world dialectic, the innate and irresistible propensity to make connections drives discovery. Figures become either actors placed in vaguely familiar roles or witnesses to the action at hand. Others become part of a shadow world, sometimes made sinister and other times inactivated as they are engulfed in darkness or disappear into a diaphanous ether. One can’t quite work out purpose or structure but must instead abandon explication for exploration.
