Artist Bio

Images and words are the stuff of history. They are the echoes of traffic, the freighted footprint of our existence. Using images, be it photographs or film stills (Still-life) as source material—my own or others—no matter their origin to tell a better story or at least an interesting one is my intention. The manipulation of fragments, of feelings, of thoughts rent mute is the gist of my interest in our interior selves as story. The chosen images, singularly or in juxtaposition with another act like mise-en-scenes. It is not what is seen but what is suggested by the seen that is the condition. A clarity of intent being opaque, suggesting an enigmatic reading can become captivating. Images occupy the fragile working place of memory/imagination. Agitating this cleavage between thought and action develops the inchoate into something like an identity though fleeting; signifiers of many facets, of various genres. My work is a representation of a representation, an acknowledgement and sharing with the past, with the present and hopefully with the future.
