Inspired by photography's unique role in negotiating what we believe to be real or true, my work
explores the nature of representation and the exchange of influence between perception and experience,
aFor me, the coexistence of contradictions marks the moment when apparent
realities collide. When we recognize that something is both askew
and right on the mark, confusion and/or enlightenment usually follow.
Humor and irony often color my work as I play with visual miscues
and the deceptive nature of appearances. Challenging the assumptions
that define and limit our experience, my work investigates how visual information transmits information and values, infiltrates our
consciousness, occupies our memories and influences our understanding
of the world we live in.
