An Artist Portfolio
As an observer and artist I get my inspiration from the varied experiences of living and life. Using the mediums of photography and video allows me to put myself, if only briefly, into the experience of my subjects. Borrowing the still-life, snap-shots or momentary records of their lives. At times my subjects are aware of me and my camera yet there often remains a strong sense of invading of publicly private moments. I use these ready-made observations as the foundation for my questions about the living experience. I use digital technology to isolate interactions, and use the remaining symbolism of people, patterns and light to create tabloe that softly and formally proclaim visual balance and harmony. The remaining imagery makes statements in their titles while posing questions within their composition. The longer you look, the more universal and human the questions appear. Leaving the viewer with little resolve.
