My work is a
visual record of my connection to the world. Through pilgrimage to places of
historical and psychological impact, I have collected a vast library of
images that I use to travel between the present and the past, connecting the
dots of humanity’s magnificent opportunities and repeated mistakes.
Contrasting images are used to create detailed comparisons of the wretched
and the sublime, light and dark, nature and technology. Lines blur and
connections are made. Profoundly spiritual observations are presented
alongside the moral bankruptcy of war.
We continue to bait and fear
the same things that have brought us to the brink of destruction so many
times before: Fear of otherness, scapegoating, greed. Nature is the one
thing that connects us all; every person on the earth lives here, on this
magnificent planet. Until we truly learn from the power and beauty of the
natural world, we will continue to make the same mistakes.
works explore these ideas in a wide variety of media, through physical
processes as well as through the use of specific imagery. The images combine
with process to form the content. Through the processes of layered
techniques, works reveal moments of beauty and horror. Embedded photographic
processes help to focus and sharpen the impact of the imagery,
show explores relationships between these images, using a variety of
techniques. A surprising visual language is created, one that reaches places
of submerged memory and subconscious reality. Individual pieces present
diverse images that, presented in juxtaposition, create a poetic narrative.
