ARTIST STATEMENT: Starting with captured images from real exchanges on my smart phone, my work comprises a visual diary that probes the space between relationships as they strive to stay connected over all kinds of distances. Through my interaction with the computer interface as a means of communication I have been compelled to reconsider perspective. I am fascinated by the dislocated angle of finding myself placed behind my interlocutor’s eyes, as I am seeing me, looking at him, gazing back. The recursive portrait that occurs in these virtual exchanges impels an experience from several vantage points at once. Two images in one image at the same time—presented as embedded diptychs—the crux of this work is in the embedded window, which serves as a portal for information transference. Translating the electronic screen into paint on wood, these works are presented in a way that exposes the processes of making them, where chronicle is reversed and the medium returns to the historic. Using limited color tones I strive to encourage the abstract dialogue between shapes and study the rapport of two separate images. Building layers of pattern in an accumulation of mark-making the moving image is made still, and then made to reflect time, again. It is the exchange between these multiple points of engagement that I’m particularly interested in. My work explores those moments when we feel as though we are mere observers to our own circumstance, when we are left floating in various states of suspended communication as we struggle for cohesion.
