Artist Statement

  P { margin-bottom: 0.08in; }

Choreography of Pictorial Fetishes.


These works represent the most recent stage on my personal artistic path.

From compositions on paper and paintings, I have expanded my research into conceptual photographs.


Selected from raw, elemental works on paper, drawings are cut apart and set into motion to become the basis of these images devised through a solely analog method. The choreography of its pictorial elements gives it a new status as the dancing parts of the painted image become a photograph in its own original genre.


The transformed image gains strength through the process which progresses from manual drawing to mechanical reproduction.

In the act of displacement, these light sculptures are defined by a gesture

of substitution as time caught on a surface. Originating from elusive forms,

intact drawings and their constructed counterparts appear in fetish form.

This experiment leads the viewer to re-examine the image's inner nature

through a less definable interpretation, outside of our descriptive world.
