Artist Statement

The focus of my photographic work is layers of light, space, and form. I catch different elements in all of their material, reflective, and illusive forms. Many of my photographs are of the shadows cast by objects. Others include both the object and the shadow - the relationship created between them; the subtleties of space around them. I try to define space by line and plane and am intrigued by the optical illusions that result.

My recent work uses the process of collage-making. Cutting into, re-arranging the original photograph, and creating juxtapositions of different elements within an original photographic image (and at times its duplicate) lead to puzzlements and new discoveries about the qualities of light, space, and form.
