Biography

Taking inspiration from Dutch and Spanish vanitas paintings from the 16th and 17th century, my mixed media collages incorporate artifacts with in the traditional construct of the still life. This combining the present and past speaks to memory and personal legacy both the decomposition of the natural (such as rotting fruit and withering flowers) and the breakdown of man made objects (reference the physical body and mortality).

Much of my work explores the power of object to bear witness to intangible ideas and emotional truths. The work employs the iconography and symbols of common every day objects means of communication. The use of photography mixed medium, itself adds to the irony when viewed with in the historical framework of vanitas painting, evoking viewer to call to the mind to question?
