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 work is grounded in photography, video and performance and revolves around modes of exchange, intimacy and perception. Through collaborations with strangers, mimes, professional actors and untrained outsider artists, I use recognizable photographic genres and role-play to make objects, construct events, and forge artificial histories and relationships for the camera, exploring the inherent fictions and complex perspectives of photography, and the conflation between the documentary and constructed tableaux genres. Family identity and structure, physical connections and social interactions dominate my work; formal groups, couples, parent/child, though they are all in one-way or another fictions.
