language is my first love, visual art is second; I seem to cram layers of narrative into my
visual vocabulary of photographic and installation work.
composing images I am openly curious to what is immediately available while superimposing
my own questions and answers within the frame of the viewfinder:
is the effect of change? why the breakneck pace of our culture? who lost this
object? who suffered in this moment? what is it about the surface tension of skin,
of water, that I obsess over? does nature need us? -and so on.
visual beauty and abstract yet positional narrative are what constitutes the saturation
point in my work.
This image was made while on residency at Caldera.
