The photographic fragments in my collage pieces are marks, brushstrokes, functioning like any other marks; their existence and significance is always in relation to the other accumulated marks around them. Every piece, regardless of medium, comes back to an act of painting; relating one mark to another as they accumulate over time. Through this buildup of marks and images, each piece should become, like the photographs of Gregory Crewdson, an extended cinematic event, lasting for hours and hours of time.
My goal with these accumulations is the creation of multiple spaces; physical space, illusionistic space, psychological space. It is more important for the work to have sense of history, rather than story. The everyday, the personal, the banal should become intertwined in their own mystery, mysticism and eventually mythology.
