Mixed Media & Collage - Social Commentary

As an artist, I am concerned with the way in which visual communication is vaulnerable to conditioning and individual perception just as language is. After many years of studying photo realistic works and photographic images, I am consumed by the ephemeral moment that these images aim to capture but which often only offer a glimpse of real identity or memories and instead rather in time, create an almost ficticious ideal of a person or place. Empty Vessels combines photographs taken during my time spent rebuilding New Orleans four years after hurricane Katrina with tin type and silverplate portraits which have outlived the person depicted and which now have no attached identities. In attempts to create an entirely new story for both abandoned structures and forgotten persons, when the true identity is lost, I hope to give both a new sense of place. Stop. Think. Record. Pass Along. Move Forward.
