Artist's statement

Full Artist's statement

Most recently much of my work has sought to capture in narrative recent losses, grief, and the family and familial influence, impact and involvement in the fictive. Soft focus has long been part of my traditional camera imagery. My imagery now uses the pixilated quality of low resolution digital images to similar effect. These radically pixilated images show colors much more like a pointillist painting than a photograph. My recent work heightens this by using large scale and translucent fabric. Multiple layers of fabric allow me to enrich and embellish that experience in a way that working on a single plane could not. The fabric speaks to the ephemeral nature of life itself and art as a reflection of that. Movement adds to the tactile quality of the work. The shifting layers change the focus and the intensity of the image, while adding an element of the quixotic. Creating a dreamlike landscape, allowing the piece to keep changing, just as memory and life does. My work continues to change and speak, even after it has left my hands.
