I think simplicity is found only in abstraction. Even remarkably simple things–bare things–are immensely complicated. Material history and transient states fundamentally change how we see things. Everything and everyone exists in a state of change, and evidence of this complicates our mental picture of familiar things.
I look for scenes at the intersecting points of different stories, trying to find compositions with a complicated legacy, or presenting multiple viewpoints. The straightforward way in which I approach the subject matter of these photographs is important: I am exploring the tension created by photographs which are compositionally flat, but contextually multilayered
My work is concerned with surfaces where traces of the past are etched into the current moment. What at first appears to be insignificant and monogenous, becomes a delicate record of timelines converging. Change is inevitable for all things, but photographs allow us to freeze that change where it can be considered with careful appreciation.
