ARTIST STATEMENT: Born in 1961 in Brooklyn, NY, I am best known for my hand-cut-and-assembled gelatin silver photo collages, and for the B&W photographs from which they are made. I am a self-taught collage artist, and created my first work at 8 years old, a bookcase covered with meticulously cut and pasted magazine pictures. In 1999, I graduated from SUNY Empire State College with a B.A. in Documentary Visual Studies and Society - a self-styled major which combines my love of photography and commentary. In the early 2000’s I began cutting up my gelatin silver photographs for use in collage, in order to carry on with my work during a period when I had no access to a darkroom. This led to my ongoing Architextures series of hand-cut-and-assembled photo collages. I also create mixed-media surrealist collages, often using one of my store window mannequin photos as the basis for an exploration of an emotional state. I have exhibited my gelatin silver photographs and collages in New York, and nationwide, for over fifteen years. My images have been featured in New York Gallery Guide, About.com, and The Sun Magazine. I have been interviewed for WBAI Radio in New York, and received a Puffin Foundation Grant for a documentary photography project in 2003. I was recently awarded a FY2016 Grant to Individual Artists and Scholars, by the Montgomery County (MD) Arts and Humanities Council. My photographs and collages are in private collections in the US and abroad. I currently live and work in New York and Silver Spring, MD.

You are cordially invited to join me to celebrate my solo exhibition, Architextures: Handmade Silver Gelatin Photo Collages, on Wednesday, October 19 from 6-8 PM, at Hill Center Galleries in Washington, DC. The show runs from October 6 through December 30, 2016, and there will be an artist talk during the holiday reception on Sunday, December 11 from 3-5 PM. You may see my work on the second floor, in the Constantino Brumidi Gallery and adjoining Sister Duffy Gallery.

Hill Center is located at 921 Pennsylvania Avenue SE, Washington, DC 20003, one block east of the Eastern Market metro station on the blue, orange, and silver lines. Open hours for Hill Center are Monday - Thursday 10 AM-7 PM; Saturday 10 AM - 5 PM; and Sunday 12 PM - 5 PM. On occasion, a particular gallery may be closed for a special event. To confirm that a gallery is open, it is advisable to call in advance: 202-549-4172.

Hill Center DC is a 150-year-old, lovingly restored Civil War Naval hospital, with bucolic gardens and grounds, and three floors filled with art. There is a wide variety of educational and cultural programs, and an inviting cafe located in the property's historic carriage house. Complete information may be found on the Hill Center's web site: http://hillcenterdc.org/

I will be exhibiting 19 photo collages, including the two largest-ever works in my ongoing Architextures series. These collages were produced with funds from a 2016 Individual Artists and Scholars Grant from the Arts & Humanities Council of Montgomery, County, MD. I am excited to be showing several additional collages created in 2016, as well as others which have never been publicly exhibited.
