Entry Description

As children growing up, my brother, a friend and I used to play in an abandoned building. The different rooms contained objects that appealed to us and we gathered these trinkets to put them into the cleanest room, essentially creating a hideout. My work is very much about reading and activating spaces that have somehow been disconnected from society. What or who is not there? What can’t we see? How do we overcome the helplessness of not being able to ground an image? The images aim to exploit this helplessness to create a more visceral response to images.
