STATEMENT

 

My interest is to pay close attention, to glimpse - and then give expression to

certain feelings and observations. In recent years I have turned to photography

in order to exercise and strengthen another muscle for seeing. My current work

reflects a keen interest in the surface history of the ancient walls, portals and

alleyways I witnessed while recently traveling to Napoli, Italy and Palermo, Sicily.

My working process consists of many layers...

 

time and material.

I move from knowing to not knowing.

From reckless abandon to careful consideration

It is never tedious or boring,

for I feel as though I am always betting the house

on the final outcome.

 

My favorite moment is when the conversation is over.

And that can take days, weeks, even months.

But to know there is nothing more to be done -

that everything I could possibly say

has been said, and at last I can step away

and think to myself

it works.
