Artwork Description
Description
This is a Laser Rayograph on negative resin paper. The technique expands upon Rayographs by using for the first time direct laser, as well as laser light filtered occasionally through prisms and crystals to create a futuristic glitch effect.
Collection Statement
When did you first realise you are repressed?
I think I have been slowly realising it for years. But it’s only been recently that I have begun to realise the extent of it.

What do you mean?
I recently begun to understand the extent to which repression defines me. I am enraged by it. It feels like much of what I call “myself”, is a constructed person, limited and restrained in countless ways that make me better suited for work. Better suited for parenthood. Better suited for marriage.

Aren’t those things you want?
Yes. [...]


wild beast,
your soul an empty landscape, without words

words impose on the soul
and determine its choices

wild beasts roam the land
hunting; gathering; not one, without freedom
The wind and water brushing off their footprints

the darkness you have fought Promethea;
bringing light

your guts eaten by wild beasts on the cross

in the beginning there was light
before light; a beast

before the beginning
so perfect was the beast
in the darkness
Artist Information
Bio
I shoot film and develop and print my photographs in a traditional darkroom.

Work in the arts:
Founder and CEO of LoCA.art (2020-Now). In 2020 I started LoCA, combining my passion for art and my experience in tech. My goal is to help Artists around the world share more of their work within their communities and globally, culturally enrich their neighborhoods, and create a new local economy for artists to thrive in.

Maintained a darkroom and exhibiting art studio in Seattle, WA (2015-2019)

Photographer and Videographer for a short documentary film about the blues on Mississippi, USA. (2014-2016). Followed a band of musicians on 2 filming tours up and down the Mississippi, interviewing musicians, historians, and librarians of the blues, playing gigs, and learning about the African American culture that gave birth to the blues and American music. A short documentary from the footage was presented in theatres in Seattle.

Photography, Cameraman, and interview work for Ubuntu Pathways (2010-2012). Worked in South Africa and London with a team of videographers and artists to produce media for https://ubuntupathways.org. Ubuntu Pathways is a cradle-to-career non-profit in Port Elizabeth, South Africa.

Director of Photography Brighton Fashion Show (2011-2012)

Photography used for a cover of "Buddhadharma: The Practitioner's Quarterly" in 2012.
Artist Statement
The purpose of my art practice is to reflect on what I am subconsciously creating and understand something about my experience. Sharing art is also a way of expanding that experience, and creating community.

I use the visual artwork I create, as a mirror to my subconscious. I create images, and then look through them, waiting for something to talk to me, an idea to spark, an emotion to emerge. When it does, I meditate on it. Sometimes I discover overwhelming emotions that have never been explained before. Other times it takes hundreds of images, for a pattern to emerge.
