Artist's Statement

My landscapes address perception of space. The disorientation that comes with the constant flux of our environment is represented in the elusiveness of the images.  By blurring the photographs and fragmenting, they become sensations of perishable moments.  Moving through the photographs there is a transient feeling of actuality becoming a memory because sometimes things can exist in a more intense way inside memory and longing. This air of confusion surrounding the images, distortion and abstraction creates around itself a void.  But in these vacant photographs there is an undeniable presence, a look, that adds to this unrealizable longing for connection. The fleetingness of the disjointed terra firma questions the capability of comprehending the here and now.
