It is my intent to explore how artistic non-linear expression can bypass cognitive constructions. It has a unique ability to speak directly and create individual interpretations, seed questions, create dialogue.
The tableaux are staged scenes loosely centered around contemporary social issues. By staging friends I am able to create images that exist between fact and fiction, driving an imbalance.
Objects from the above sets are also to be found encapsulated in clear rectangular epoxy blocks. Presented together they challenge the ideas of documentation and permanence. They introduce a further dialogue between the objects, the images they sit in, the stories they live in.
