About the work
Since 1989 I have created photographs, videos, sculptures and installations grounded in personal narrative examining labor, culture, time, place, and weather. My continued practice has shifted from its beginnings in photographic large-format portraiture to a multilayered poetic experience in a dialogue between documentary and the musings of imagination. Regarding present political circumstances I have also collaborated with individuals and communities to address issues such as empowerment, the environment and economics.
The recent work on this site is inspired by the landscapes of surrealist Kay Sage. I've created collage and maquettes for site-specific sculpture and installations. The constructions also function as props in photographic narratives that present open-ended outcomes. While my sculptural interpretations draw Sage’s charged landscapes into a third dimension, the photographs provide yet a fourth dimension implied through the interstitial lens of time and history.
