My recent work expands on ongoing investigation of the interaction of memory, the passage of time, and of identity. I am keenly interested in how memory forms our sense of being and how that can be affected by the contradictions that the past and present pose. In the act of remembering, there is a point where reality and the interpretation of reality cross, and it’s that intersection that I wish to explore.
My images are created in the darkroom. After printing, the images are toned with coffee, then painted with oil and acrylic paint. My work explores memories with emotional layers embedded in the narratives. I then re-photograph the final image to create a distance and render them into a tangible object for remembrance.
