My artwork illustrates the time contained within a structure. There are two time eras encompassed in each structure which exist simultaneously.
The incongruity is concurrently obvious and invisible. I bring the
viewer’s attention to the details that denote the disparity in time periods. Both images in the frame are photos of the same structure. In the black and white photo, whiteout, or correction fluid, is painted over the modern “improvements.” The past is manifest in what remains. In the
color photo, the artistry of the past is painted over to highlight the
transformations of the present era. I am interested in exploring disparate
aspects of seemingly integrated entities. My interest is also on the
unnoticed, the ignored or overlooked features of our everyday world, from
shadows to foliage that pushes through concrete edifices to signs of
human encroachment in “untouched” natural environments.
