My photographs reference the everyday, and function as formal engagements, as small abstract paintings might. Taken without the use of a macro lens, these images appear at first minute or grandiose but instead are ordinary things, at ordinary distances. We see ourselves in the reaction to what is around us, what we connect to in our surroundings. My interests lie in the correspondence of the organic and inorganic, by the parallels and correlations that emerge in these seemingly disparate forms. By treating these familiar surfaces with varied investigations in placement, order or reference, their meanings become disbembodied, freed to be appreciated in a new light.
My images contain no action or figure, but are the markings of time and place, the relics of what has been or occurred. They are scabs, drips, and gestures alive with their own history.
