ARTIST STATEMENT: The point of creating is to impress upon minds, while promoting a visual change; My greatest passion is to create exploring and unveiling various visual states that are being examined in relation to beauty, rejuvenation, transformation and ultimately self. My images are reflective of my environment expressed in abstract form. The abstract photographs are the creation of images during film development gone awry and opens the eyes of the viewer to new associations and alternative ways of seeing.
It’s my goal to evoke curiosity and instill new visual references. The work I do allows me to create a filing system for my mind; I categorize my thoughts and mental investigations. As a member of this society I ultimately convey a larger more involved message in visual context. Social and spiritual limitations that encourage me are the fabric of my being. The explorations of these subjects are carried out with the intent of evoking thought in the viewer and to imply an interconnected link in the human experience. I am interested in the idea of unexpected materials as a renewed visual, which stands in contrast to the typical photographer’s thought process. After the photographs created in the dark room they are used in various forms from large-scale images, collage parts and textile prints are made therefore used as a pallet for subsequent works. Thus, my artistic practice motivates me to capture and create works that are visually intriguing. My work is created in effort to challenge age-old visual associations and pushing down visual perceptions and creating new paths to enlightenment.
