Artist Statement
Through the use of sculpture, photography, video, and installation, I give my impression of a place, its people and a locale. Often, the cinematic image stands in for real life as it plays out behind windows in the buildings, sometimes creating a sense of mystery, other times stressing the mundane. My work derives from sociology, voyeurism, and geographical and architectural location.

My core skill as an artist is to capture the essence of time and place, engaging with my surroundings and merging its residents, localities and atmospheric peculiarities into my work. By exploring my immediate environment, studying every detail and extracting specific highlights, I transform the information into artworks, best described as 3-D non-linear sculptural films. Combining sculpture, video, light, sound, and sometimes even water and smell, they capture places and people at a specific time in history.
