Currently I am exploring perception, how we see, create and transform images through looking. My objective is to scrutinize the relationship between what is revealed and what remains unseen and to enable an encounter, an intimate conversation directly with the viewer. I am also interested in questioning the viewer experiences and creating a situation for them to become aware of this sensual process. Can they see what I see? Does this change as time is spent with these images?
I use a camera as an artistic medium and a tool for experimentation. I use natural and artificial light along with different textures and an array of objects to create visually engaging images to garner phantasmagorical effects. Applying tricks of the hand, I manipulate objects, revealing dark and mysterious forms which I label menacing. These Ive named Menacing Abstractions. Do you see what I see? I invite all to look for what I have found in my practice. This may result in effects that shift and reveal, instances when the artwork itself may be barely seems recognizable, but with time, gaze back at the viewer. These images have further revealed themselves in a new series of paintings.
