Artist Statement

For me, the most fascinating aspect of human existence lies in what we create, the EVERYDAY OBJECTS. It is these materials and structures that reveal our desires, our necessity, our creativity, and our capability. Equally fascinating is the tremendous diversity we then display in our engagement with these constructed objects. We sometimes hold dear and embrace our creations for decades or centuries. Or, we may neglect them, unceremoniously, leaving it to the artist or curious passerby to rediscover and redefine our relationship to these forgotten structures as they age, weather, or crack. As one of these curious-type people, I find myself drawn to the colors and craftsmanship, the scars and wrinkles. Although such details and long-lost whispers may go unnoticed by many, to me they exude shimmering glimpses of depth, history, and meaning I can not help but explore, photograph, and share.
