The White Columns Curated Artist Registry is an online catalog of digital images documenting the work of artists who are not affiliated with a commercial gallery in New York City. Each submission is reviewed by our curatorial staff; in order to be considered for the registry, one must submit work digitally via this website.
My current work consists of digitally joined photographic imagery with a variety of origins: male physiques, details of motorcycles and cars, fetish gear, athletic endurance events, group motorcycle rides, and sexual activity among men. Through both content and form, these works are intended to explore male bonding, conceptions of masculinity and power, physical struggle, and sensual release. The works are archival digital photo prints. The images in the previous body of work, the Wall Series, are tied together by shared aesthetic concerns and a very subjective sense of kinship. They are intended to suggest a world of beauty, intense sensation, and raw emotion, both a liberating and nightmarish antidote to the buffered and contingent nature of contemporary life. The images are to be presented as a closely-hung wall of images that envelops the viewer. The works originated with conventional photographic film, which I then scanned and digitally manipulated. The final pieces are digitally output as archival inkjet prints.
