My work explores memory, history, observation, and imagination. I’m interested in how an historic site, a photograph, an artwork can provoke us to consider multitudes of deeply personal and cultural meanings.
At the core of my work, I create responses to antique photographs by transforming them, usually by painting directly onto the surfaces. And recently I’ve experimented with using silk thread to alter photographs. I partner with the whole photograph as century-old object, as well as the poignant appearances of people from the past. New stories develop from and in relationship with the old.
