Description

My art practice revolves loosely around themes of individual and col lective relationships to community, culture, place and history. I strive to create visual works – in both photography and video – in which the contemporary and historical merge as concomitant experiences. I am interested in how memory and history function, as both have the power to frame, and limit, our sense of the past and places of past experience. For a visual artist, these invisible stories that often resonate beneath the ground we stand on are mysterious. The notion of trying to make visual what cannot be directly seen propels my work forward.
