Description

Artwork is framed; frame color is white // About the artist: "Photography and collecting images is how I orient myself to the world. I photograph compulsively, capturing images of my life and surrounding environment. I believe that hidden within aesthetic impulses are the collected memories of a lifetime. We retain more memories than we can recall, and need only mechanisms to access them. Like Proust’s madeleine, photography and art can be these mechanisms. This generative process is central to my practice; taking a photograph can stimulate a memory, which can than lead to more involuntary memories and more photographs. One photograph leads to next, just as one moment or one choice leads to another. This gathering process extends from the camera to family album photographs, vintage postcards, found objects, and other ephemera. This archive serves as raw material for narrative and conceptual projects and inspires new photographs in response to the memories and feelings engendered. Dealing with themes of masculinity, trauma, illness, nostalgia and longing, my art interrogates the nature of memory and how the past shapes our future. Through reflecting on improvised photographs of the quotidian and my own aesthetic proclivities, I hope to strip away the veneer of everyday life and get to something vital and true."
