HERE TO VIEW THE ARTWORK
is a representative selection of a body of conceptual art work
that spans nearly 30 years.
My creative process involves observing the relationships and connections
between the external world and the inner world. To do this kind
of work, I begin by wandering around, looking for the connections
and relationships that present themselves to me. I use found objects,
both man-made and natural, as symbols of ideas, in context with
the locations in which they are found and events or happenings
occurring around them.
The work breaks down into three categories; single images, diptychs
and series of three or more.
The single images are site specific and usually involve assemblages
of found objects that evoke a symbolic connection or reference
to the human experience.
My Diptych pieces involve the process of what I call "a simple
doing," where I transform the piece from "before to
after," or from "this to that," or from "here
to there." It's the deliberate interjection or transformation
that is key to the piece.
The series involve an observation of a process that, again, gives
reference to the "human experience," and is expressed
over multiple images.
