RAYMOND MEEKS Ciprian Honey Cathedral

Raymond Meeks is renowned for his use of photography and the book form to poetically distill the liminal junctures of vision, consciousness and comprehension. In RAYMOND MEEKS Ciprian Honey Cathedral, he brings this scrutiny close to home, delicately probing at the legibility of our material surroundings and the people closest to us.

Meeks has long been fascinated by the way we construct the world around us; how we carry our possessions, these accumulated comforts, inheritances, markers of material success; how we adorn homes with trees and shrubs, a mantle clock to count the hours. Stumbling across an abandoned house or unkempt lawn becomes a search for common clues to tiny hidden transgressions.

This question of knowledge and understanding is perhaps most drastic in our solipsistic reality. Meeks also photographed his partner, Adrianna Ault, in the early mornings before she awoke, on the threshold at which daily domestic life converges with the deepest state of sleep. This plight of supine trance is a place of reprieve beneath the surface of consciousness, free from the chaos and uncertainty of the sentient world above, and alludes to the veiled threat that, ultimately, we are utterly unknowable to one another.

“What is there between the branch and apple when it falls?
We have seen it—we would recognize it anywhere. Yet of an evening we are told nothing is there.”
- Wright Morris
