December 16, 2011 – January 28, 2012
The work I make is based on things and places I see, feel and keep close to me. I make them to try to understand what they are, what they mean, and how I should understand them. Many of the subjects are things that seem very familiar but through the process become confused or unreal because of the associations created within the picture. I try to remain open to whatever path they take me down.
