“My work confronts social and spiritual issues by incorporating antique objects with vintage photographs into narrative assemblage. The constructions explore aspects of femininity, the perceived, projected, expected, and the actual… and are often conceived through memories, dreams and fears. The works often include articles that I find in flea markets, antique stores and trash bins.  I am constantly working with new processes and structure and have most recently completed a new series entitled “Laced”. For this work, I photographed mug shot-like female portraits outdoors with natural light. With wood putty and graphite, the photographic surfaces are re-rendered and then dramatically altered with incised lace patterns. With a feeling similar to the Maori warrior facial tattoos, at once sexy and intimidating, created out of a symbol of elegance, femininity and ironically Victorian repression.”
