In many ways, I think of my work as non-traditional portraiture; I am not as concerned with communicating a physical likeness as much as conjuring less visible aspects of the subject. I’m interested in the relationship among the physical and the ephemeral forms. I construct sculptural environments in my studio with which I interact and capture the movement on film. My movements are awkward and strained in reality, but I choose to print images that translate as fluid and graceful. The images start to hint at notions of transience and, in turn, move beyond the specific action taking place. As the clear reference to photography falls away, the images start to become more abstract, leaving room for broader associations to take place.
