HUMAN BY NATURE

(from the show "A Strange Beauty")

The diverse life forms of the earth live in the human psyche. This relationship influences how we see ourselves as human. These portraits are meant to represent epic characters that live within our human psyche. The relationships found in each image forms a bond of empowerment. The fragile bubble is a metaphor for the fragile nature of life and is a reminder of our mortality. This metaphor is sometimes found in Renaissance still life painting. The wooden sill can also be found in Renaissance art and in this group forms a link, chaining images together into a single body of work, belonging to the same story. Other ties to Renaissance art can be felt in the lighting, color and design. The Dutch painter Jan van Eck (1450) has been especially influencial in these studies.

OBJECTS OF WONDER

(from the show "A Strange Beauty")

These images are not about making a document of something in front of the camera for science. The camera and the computer become a stage for the performance of an idea. These visual impressions are meant to imbue an everyday object with magic in a place where anything is possible. In this world, every object has a story which can be unlocked by the viewers imagination. It is a place of wonder where life that once existed is re-animated in a unique way. Nothing is coincidental. It is a grounded, guided experience between what we know and what we don't know and the closure we try to acquire in the process. The assumption that photographic images represent something "true" is the unique nature of photography and can be used to many ends. It is my hope that everyone is able see new things in these images that they never before imagined.
