Artist Statement Submitted 2015

In this body of work my concerns are the signs, symbols, and icons of our society and their multiple interpretations depending upon who is interpreting and from what perspective. Due to this varied interpretation I have (in some cases) changed the pictorial nature of what was photographed, leaving only a depiction, an abstraction. This is one of the ways I have tried to provoke questions. Questions about what the image is (in its visceral sense), why the material of that object is changed, and what does this constructed nonfiction mean. Basically, things are not as they seem or as they are understood to be.
