In Dreamer’s House I remain intrigued by the alchemy and mystery of the photograph; it's description of a sentience, the passage of time and a universal sense of what each of us crave. In this time of tumult and displacement, I’m looking closely at an essential foundation, a core experience which amplifies something we all share. Haunted, mundane, elegant or in disarray, the notion of home provides a singular order. This is part of a greater body of work which explores the visual anomalies of the contemporary moment through interior space, found stillness, and the feminine body. Dreamer’s House is an exploration of the richness of metaphor; how our narrative and the material nature of our lives coalesce into a life.
I am committed to an immersive experience of place. As an artist, I’ve spent a lifetime leaning toward what is unknown and the desire to keep something of an uncertain ground underfoot. Becoming at ease with this moving platform allows a sense of curiosity to thrive. My work is formal in approach and motivated by observation and discovery. I continue to use film and large format 8 x 10 camera, which forces me to move slowly and interpret my surroundings at a pace that is in opposition to our culture’s spinning clock.
