Presentation Abstract

I am interested in how we remember. I am intrigued by the mystery of photographs that hint of an idealized memory or place, or even a dark hidden fragment, a thing barely tangible. So often our memories are flawed and imprecise, just shards of an experience of a place or time. Often they are jumbled and chaotic. Very rarely is a memory so crystalline that we can conjure up all the details, so it is with these qualities in mind that I create my constructed still lifes. This body of work uses representations of the human form and visual cues such as bottles, twigs, seeds, and string to visually reconstruct fragmented memory. My intent is to create images that cause the viewer to pause and ask questions about the elements in the work and to create relationships between the elements that have no singular interconnection, but that allow each viewer to project their experience into the images.
