My work is a visual diary, exploring historical events and memories, mixed with fictionalization. I use the landscape as a surrogate for self, with the images living and breathing via atmosphere and light. The images feel like an experience, either personal or interpreted. There is a cataract quality, a solemn chroma, and a patina that is evaporating, which is an attempt at forcing the viewer to consider location as emotional space rather than geographic.
