Artist Statement Submitted 2019

Go Back, Go Back is a lens-based project exploring spatial, historical and technological ambiguity. Building upon a 15-year investigation of intergenerational communication and the passage of cultural currency, the work employs the artist’s ancestral home as the site for the projection of photographs from the artist’s early childhood onto the same surfaces and spaces from which they were taken nearly 4 decades ago. These works problematize notions of material culture, blurring the lines between past and present, memory and vision, surface and screen, analog and digital, real and implied texture. Engaging pictorial strategies that draw upon collage and deconstructed narratives of portraiture and permanence, the resulting images confuse physicality and illusion in ways rendered evermore complex through the two-dimensional printing of the images.
