“The questions that I ask in my work are about the mediation of perception, how visual description necessarily alters and inflects that which is described. Historically, my practice has used photography as its central tool, utilizing the formal tendencies of the camera (to flatten space, fragment a view, and change scale) to facilitate instances of distortion and ambiguity.
As time has passed, and evolution necessarily occurred, I have found myself moving toward other media–namely sculpture and printmaking–in order to further explore ideas of transformation, intervention, and change vis-à-vis representation. These new avenues afford different, but related, opportunities to focus on process, accumulation, and the unraveling inherent to reproduction as ends within themselves. ”
