Artist Registry


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

In my work, I document and evaluate psychological environments. I began my career in 2008 as a documentary photographer. Over the past several years, my work has transformed into a conceptual, fine art practice that takes the form of sculptural, print, photographic and mixed-media works. Despite these seemingly disparate forms, the camera remains the connecting thread among all of my undertakings. Each piece begins with the camera and then comes to its final form through a process of meditation, translation, and manipulation.

As the child of a military man, I spent my childhood in flux – moving every 2-3 years for the first half of my life. This pattern of transience continued into adulthood due to familial obligations, financial restrictions and indoctrinated habit. My work is made in direct response to my nomadic existence. It allows me to connect personally with permanence while providing a platform for social critique.
