The purpose of my work is to design an open space for thinking. Using portraiture, vast space and landscape, I invite the viewer inward, both into the work and themselves. This boundlessness creates a space to breathe, a space to think, a space to be.
The vastness is contrasted by graphic marks or shapes, often inhabited by a single figure or form -- a host for ideas, thoughts and consciousness. These surreal occurrences call into question the nature of reality.
Through photography, printmaking, sculpture, and mark making, my images are developed with a variety of wet and dry media, creating an overlap of realism and imagination. The stillness and subversive reality captured in the work evokes the powers of observation; accelerating our sense of wander, wonder and questioning.
