What the art is:
My art has always been socially charged- a stream of consciousness narrative where I tell a story by combining loosely related ideas, components and language. It is both familiar/ambiguous, humorous/serious. My intent is to create work that allows viewers to question, ponder and sometimes chuckle.
The chosen media:
The past few years my art has been composed of plywood, objects, paint, and photo emulsion. Image making involves digital and analog processes. First, a collage is created via computer, and a negative produced using an inkjet printer. Plywood is then cut, bent and assembled into a sculptural form with found objects and elements in relief. Paint and photo emulsion are then applied to the work. Printing is done in a traditional B&W darkroom, with an enlarger projecting the negative onto the emulsion layer. After exposure, the image is archivally processed using standard B&W chemistry.
