“The act of making art is me processing my everyday experiences and looking at relationships: how we treat each other ad ourselves. When approaching daily choices, oftentimes we end up with short-term fulfillment; rather than a long-term contribution to a positive well-being. My work is an awareness of these self-destructive tendencies and the inherent struggle that results upon this realization: a fight for self-control.”
“These images of children are intended to be catalysts for emotional reactions. Multiple reaction points hover within these images. They delve into the serious and complex world of childhood showing the relationship between the children as they vacillate between id-driven play and presentations of their social selves. This body of work has been evolving over the last 15 years. As the older girls mature and younger children enter the tableau, the interactions between the sitters themselves become part of the dynamic. Some of the photos begin to take on a still-life quality as the action slows.”
