ABOUT THE ARTIST
I grew up in Conshohocken, exploring factory relics along the Schuylkill River. That interest in the ever-changing landscape has continued into my adult life. My work is influenced by the sociological shift in the communities that were originally built around industry and the remnants of places that no longer exist. I photograph buildings that are in some way imperfect, or have a humble, almost forgotten quality. Through the repetition of the printed image, these structures create an implied narrative and a metaphor for the human condition.
My work is a combination of painting, photography, and printmaking techniques. The process of making a print has always intrigued me: not only because of the immediacy of the medium, but also because it is that which remains when the plate or screen is removed. In this way, I think of my creative process as a meditation on the transient nature of reality.
