I work with images of Americana found on postcards, press photos, magazines, movie stills, and other sources. These familiar images form a shared psychological landscape. My work seeks to go beneath the veil of everyday appearance, and to explore concealed subterranean areas. I enjoy creating unexpected associations and new possibilities in seemingly mundane subjects.
I integrate separate images, creating an associative synthesis of the two. Distinct elements coalesce, and the final image operates as a visual metaphor. In the new image, an implicit comparison between remote objects is made, and hidden affinities and new possibilities are brought to the fore.
