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.
I work with landscape and memory using photography, sculpture and installation as my mediums, to construct pieces - sometimes small, sometimes quite large, that convey the feeling of memory or loss of memory. I have landscapes that I return to both industrial and natural as a language that relates to time and space. I have recently begun to work with making body parts out of glassine paper cast from my own body (arms, mostly, sometimes legs - often elongated to extend the reach the length of the work) to live within the landscape. The landscapes can be photographs, xeroxes, projections or lightboxes, and the combination of images and different materials is as important as the imagery itself.
I work to bridge the permeable, internal landscape of memory to the external landscape around us, locating memory in the corporal body, where it has both mental and physical dimensions to create a map of correlations between thought and the physical world.
The works are often constructed of smaller parts, in an attempt to invoke the layered strata of remembering, pieced together with intentionally visible seams, and exposed reconstruction of traveling as one does in recollection. Each piece unpredictably varies in medium, size and weight to reflect varying weights memories carry, inviting the viewer to become part of my memory recollected.
Each landscape is a landmine of thoughts waiting for the viewer to trespass into or wander upon.
