Abstract/Description:
My journey from Hollywood Film production to a Fine Arts practice has been shaped by theory from Philosophy of Mind, Cognitive Psychology, Film, and Art, leading me to a new visual vocabulary at the intersection of motion picture, the still image, and three-dimensional form.I create large mixed media collages by projecting video onto photographs and sculptural forms, breaking the boundaries of the conventional film frame and exceeding the dynamic range of typical visual experience. My work explores emotional connections and fissures within family, and hidden meanings of haunting memories and familiar places.I am searching for an elusive type of perceptual experience characterized by an instantaneous shift in perspective(-)an (")aha(") moment of epiphany when suddenly I have the overpowering feeling that I am both seeing and aware that I am seeing.
