Statement

 

         Artist Statement

I have always been fascinated with vernacular photographs, because these amateur visuals encase the illusion of memories, an overwhelming sense of nostalgia and an underlying mundanity resulting in a constant yearning for the past. This constant longing to be a part of something and yet distant from it is present in my work. My practice is a mirror image of this volatile enthrallment with the unattainable. The only evidential record of our lives is our memory of a kaleidoscopic chain of events, images, sounds, smells and feelings. In short these impressions are of abiding value to my sense of self. As a painter metamorphosizing these vernacular photographs gives me leverage to manipulate these revered objects, while fragmenting these images recall a specific moment from our collective past. The images weave together both truth through tangible photographs and illusion through distortion. There is an inherent desire to create the landscapes of a new memory. I want to establish an universal familiarity with each image, allowing viewers to extract their own personal meaning and creating for themselves a space within the frame, through ownership of the emotion that is explored within, as one that is recognizably their own Proposal My specific interest lies in the deconstruction and re-framing of vernacular photographs
