Artist Statement

Object//Image Series

“… the boundary between the real and the imaginary is more imaginary than real.”
– Joan Fontcuberta

My photographic sculptures of abstracted landscapes utilize digitally altered photographs and geometric shapes to explore the complex world of the human perception while aiming to challenge the traditional ways of viewing photography. Through the active participation of the viewer, the work is ever shifting, elevating questions about what one identifies as reality and commenting on our continuously changing environmental surroundings.

 

Landform Series

“My series of landscape collages utilizes the visual language of colors and textures found in nature. I attempt to explore this language by destroying beautiful images. Through the tearing and combining of prints into minimalist compositions, my work seeks to challenge the traditional methods of photography as well as comment on our ever-changing environment. For it is only through the reconsideration of the familiar, that we can evolve.”
