Video summary: Photographic imagery is one of the most beautiful and captivating of all artistic mediums. Photographs are fundamentally a trick, appearing very real and very true; but they are in fact quite removed from reality once one considers the actual process of capturing a photographic image. The technology required to produce a photograph ultimately creates a barrier to reality and chips away at the truth through layer upon layer of falsely translated, microscopic distortions via digital pixels, film grain, etc. Photographs are in actuality quite a fantasy, and I love being swept up in the dream. In a way, the medium of paint affords us a richer truth, as the only barrier to reality is the human being transmitting the information. As I work creatively, I find myself drawn to both mediums and am inspired by the play between the medium falsely presenting itself as truth (photography), and the medium that never promises truth, but tends to offer it without meaning to, often at the universal level of the soul (paint). My collage work explores the relationship between both processes as I traverse through the space that exists in between things, playing in the area where this crossover takes place. Through my creative process, I attempt to blur the boundaries where photography and paint collide; softening the edges between light and dark, pattern and field, magic and reality..My original works on paper are small and delicate, raw in some areas and refined in others.
