Statement

 

As an artist who emerged in the late 1970’s, on the shoulders of the conceptualists, I view photography as a experimental medium to engage, and a tool for exploration and investigation.  Rather than remaining loyal to the historical, formal, and traditional craft of photography, I am more interested in pushing the boundaries of the medium. My focus is to create and fabricate a placeless world, where the natural and the urban collide.  In a world continuously evolving by the transformative nature of time, it is the lingering remnants that hold captivating stories.

The solvent transfer digital prints draw inspiration from the beauty found in both gritty urban decay and the ever-changing natural landscape.  In the studio, I work intuitively, constructing, juxtaposing, and tying together the multiple layers of imagery using a variety of non traditional printing techniques, to create dream-like narratives that embody an implied sense of history. The images reference the interplay between past and present, imagined and existing, fragility and permanence, transition and change.
