My sculptures have a distinctly primordial origin. I push at boundaries, exploring places where the forms beckon the beholders and animate the work. My art challenges people’s predicable classifications, making them “work” to question and expand their unconscious responses and have a richer aesthetic experience. I delve into a deeper understanding of Carl Jung’s theories of archetypes and with my personal character trait of “anima.” The dead bone-white surfaces and the patterns undulate across the organic forms accentuating tension, creating visual and tactile dissonances and inviting viewers to engage actively with the work.
My photography is captured through long exposures that are often ineffable, hidden and non-descriptive, but point to the possibility of going beyond objective reality. I shoot highly dynamic spontaneous pictures which involve the sweeping unfettered movement of the camera and in contrast still lifes of long duration. Through both approaches the images take on the character of apparitions. They are recordings that go further than the recognition of a specific object or a definite landscape, but always revolves around a puzzle to disassemble. It is this inevitable impulse that leads to our feeling and desire to find hoped for traces of an ephemeral and/or transient presence, to scrutinize the photographs for objects and entities. In other words we are drawn into the interiority of the photograph, the strange feeling that if we look ever more closely things will begin to emerge.
