Artist and Art
ABOUT | The Artist
I am keenly interested in the passage of time, transformation, change, loss, and memory. I work somewhere between angst and tranquility, attempting to reconcile the past with the present. I am interested in evoking both illumination and ambiguity while cultivating a sense of surface, texture, and tone. I use both photography and painting and push both mediums to achieve a visual solution to my own curiosity. My work reflects three parallel involvements: Narrative, color, and sensory response.
Searching for imagery is part of my creative process. My selection is purely by visceral response. Whether I use one of my own photographic images, a discarded snap shot, a vintage magazine, or the Internet, my eye selects the subject and the captured image (object) serves as a jumping off point to creating a new visual story.
