Artist Statement Submitted 2014A desire to construct psychological space has always been the driving force behind my work. I examine concepts that involve the human psyche: the little foibles, phobias, and neuroses that make us all so beautifully flawed. I am fascinated by how we come to see ourselves, see others, and how others may come to see us through our quirks. Further, I am exploring our attempts to manage our issues ourselves, and the inevitable pitfalls these efforts create.
For many years I have created installations in domestic spaces in order to photograph them. The space represents a thought process, a feeling, or a subconscious drive. Recently I have branched out, using locations that are private within a larger public space to create installations that the viewer can experience physically (one a set of three hotel rooms and one a set of storage units in a self-storage facility).
