White Lie, 2010

While experimenting with crude cameras, scanners, and printers I aim to turn the lens inward, to make a conceptual connection between the hand, the lens, and the digital. The vehicle for making this work came from the experience of personal journey and meditation. In a way, these images are self-portraits, but for me they are truly a search for ethos and an inner source of voice. Visually these prints exist in a strange space, like a mandala they float in a void with out a sense of time or place. Often my hand, my lips, my body become the anchor in the center of the frame. These images are about finding a sense of wholeness in the paradox of the human condition; they are a reflection on death, love, sex, and birth.
