The White Columns Curated Artist Registry
is an online platform for emerging and under-recognized artists to share images and information about their respective practices. The Registry seeks to create a context for artists who have yet to benefit from wider critical, curatorial or commercial support. To be eligible, artists cannot be affiliated with a commercial gallery in New York City.

STATEMENT OF WORK
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.
