Statement

Artist statement

My work takes as its inspiration the fragmentary details and varied textures of everyday objects.  By the use of a mix of techniques such as manual and digital collage, photomontage, and painting, I attempt to bring out their idiosyncratic and off-beat beauty to counter the blandness of perfection.

Brought into final form with the medium of photography, it is always my goal to create an acceptable tension between the straightforward, though formally disassembled representation of the subject, and the abstract composition of the whole.  

By focusing on intimate detail and the specific character of a chosen subject matter I hope that my work acts as a kind of magnifying glass that compels the viewer to not only “look” but to “observe.”

Bio

Originally from Alsace, France, I have called Harlem, New York my home for the past nine years. Primarily self-taught in photography, I have refined my skills through classes at the International Center of Photography in New York, where I was also an Assistant Teacher. I am fascinated by details, inspired by personal interactions, and I structure my creative process with visual fragments that I collect in my daily life, travels, and relationships. I use these fragments to create my photographic collages.
