In my art, I conduct an ongoing investigation of the visual narratives created between a community and the places they inhabit. The subject matter is often drawn from the past, or from spaces lost – particularly referencing American architectural icons – but reframed in today’s vernacular. It is curious to me, this use of nostalgia, transience, permanence, roots, present, past, connectivity, heritage, and other concepts that are used to illustrate our fractured “landscapes”. Using the resulting contradictory visual information to create new social landscapes that speak to the multiple, complex, social, cultural, gender, historical, political, and environmental identities is what the work offers. The aesthetic experience both in content and materials is a platform for active engagement and dialogue.
