My imagery reveals the passing of time within an oddly shaped and jagged edged world where one appears to always be teetering on the edge of a transition. Sudden mishaps accelerate the process as memory and fantasy are triggered.
Within the physical environment my approach to the contemporary object is not to "look at how beautiful it is" but to "look at what a beautiful thing it has become" and recognize as well as visualize the nature of the metamorphosis.
In my exploration of the virtual world, subjecting the digital content of iconic imagery to non-photographic software creates new layers of pixels that generate a hybrid and mind-altering visual. The mystifying re-interpretation of the image imprinted in one’s memory triggers a journey back in time.
Both my visions of the physical and the virtual are about confronting the present and exploring the past while the future is left to the imagination.
