My work is aimed to distort our perceptions and hint at conversations about the photographer’s control, perception, perspective, translations and the contingency of reality. My work celebrates manipulation because images, even those considered documentation, go through forms of translations. I create visual languages, use various processes, and experiment with various materials. Abstraction is embraced as a method of challenging the assumptions of reality. When the limitations of language, senses, and experience are filtered or obstructed, one is free to associate meaning through their metaphysical realm. Photographs, mirrors, installations and sculptures are shown and explored under the umbrella of photography to make use of the dimensionality of an image or print. Mirrors, glass, lenses, and duplications can become metaphorical objects that are present in my work. Creating the work that I do not only offers me a therapeutic and creative outlet, but it allows viewers to take away their own interpretations on the work to show the importance of viewing things from multiple perspectives. While it may reveal the fragile, yet complicated, nature in the concept of objective truth, it is my interest in placing the real and manipulated in the same realm of illusion to illustrate the limitations of our senses, experience, and language. The adaptation of viewing from multiple perspectives becomes integral to better understanding the various realities we can make of the world through our veil of perception.
