A Spectacle and Nothing Strange
3 August 2015

The domestic interior, with its potential for subtle observations of light passing through and around everyday spaces, provides a stage for these object-based performances. As the light changes, I alter the subjects physically, change their spatial relationships, or give them personalities within a suggested narrative.

I am driven by contrasts between insignificance and monumentality, humor and seriousness, surface and depth, the timeless and the timely. Photography has always fascinated me with its ability to bridge the appearance of reality and the suggestion of something more amorphous – creating shifting meanings within our vast mental networks of association. The resulting images evoke a sense of play that engages references from still life traditions in both painting and photography while encouraging viewer participation in the construction of meaning.

2003-2009, prints are 24×20″ and 50×40″
