About the artist:
Bio: My work is a study of personalities and environments that complement imitate and incorporate elements of everyday life. My work reflects interpretations of everyday life, catching moments in time. These pieces internalize and project mundane, often overlooked interactions of individuals in society, creating compelling imagery and an intimate view of “persona”. There seems to be an accepted social disconnect or disassociation that enables us to ignore the undesirable or disadvantaged of society. People often choose how they reveal themselves or are perceived by others, unveiling a façade, discarding moral conscience. These works depict isolation, disassociation and violation, vs. confidence, security, and contentment. My work is a study of personalities and environments. My images digest the posture of individuals while faces reflect their stories. These strangers are subjects in my continuing series of artwork. I enjoy the challenge of working with a diversity of materials, taking simple paper and wire, turning them into provocative sculpture. I am always equipped with camera in hand, photographing people in their natural environments. They often share their stories and are happy to be the subject of my work. Other images are candid shots taken from afar when the subjects cannot be interrupted from their actions I appreciate the complexity of each piece, collapsing three dimensional pieces into 2 and 3 dimensional space. I love the process of combining photography, wire, papier mache and painting. My images seek out the moments of quiet humanity rapidly recording the spontaneous unfolding of life in the street. This innovative, figurative analysis is a socio/ psycho study created to bring light to the attention seekers and the overlooked of our society.
