Born in the mundane, my photographs are of this world, rather than inventions or visions of an ideal or dream, you might even say these images arise from the ground we walk on, the terra firma of daily life. Images beget images: my work is mostly in series. What I feel is provoked by the images themselves, leading to different responses and treatments— hand deckling, tearing or sewing the print. The most ritualistic and involving method, when an image feels like an occasion or ceremony, is encaustic—cooking a mix of bees wax and dammar resin and then heating, painting and fusing this layer onto the print, a veil cast over the object of our gaze.
