ARTIST STATEMENT: My work deals with subjects ranging from alternate dimensions to the exploration and exploitation of fleeting, uncanny moments. My primary format is digital photography and the exploitation of the medium drives much of my mixed-media work. My photography projects are obsessive, conceptual series. I look to photographic innovators like Ed Ruscha, Bernd and Hilla Becher, Gregory Crewdson, and Douglas Huebler to inform both my artistic process and my thought process. My current project involves documenting every bodega in Manhattan, and has received coverage in the Wall Street Journal and NY Mag's Intelligencer, among other outlets. My mixed-media work is largely influenced by the Japanese concept of heta-uma (unskillful-skillful), an idea pioneered by illustrator King Terry. I begin with an unposed, digitally un-altered street photograph, and, noticing that the true essence of the moment is missing in my shot, I attempt to explain this on the surface of the print. I use a variety of craft materials (including flocking, felt, paint marker, glitter) to describe an alternate universe, emphasize some glimpse of the uncanny, and celebrate the strange glory of the mundane.
