____________________________________

This series is both an exploration of photography’s suppressed materiality through color, flatness/volume, shape and how the three interact, and a meditation on the search for and emergence of ideas, the creative process itself, its fluidity and lack of fixed outcomes. It is evocative of Color Field painting, but the subtle modulation of volume both pries open another space for the images to inhabit, and lays bare the frustrating limitations of the dominant approaches to photography.
