My work explores an inner psychological terrain where reality is altered by perception and perception is itself molded by parallel forces that include imagination, fear, faith and wonder. These forces provide the inner sight to see the extraordinary within the ordinary and the varied individual channels where experiential environments become part of all that the individual brings to them.
I manipulate imagery to convey the sight of the inner eye and inner experience. These become sources of creative expression and a montage of layered experience. The camera, pen, or keyboard becomes a vehicle for expression that frees the potential for visualizing basically invisible states of awareness, dreams and fantasies.
I am interested in the differences between separate psychological spaces as well as in internal versus external realities. My images of windows tangibly deal with the dilemma of either daring to go through into a different psychological space, or staying within one's own internal reality while both scared and transfixed by what might be beyond the glass. These ideas are present throughout the whole of my work in a more conceptual manner.
