Artist Statement

"Poor travelers, I thought, myself among them: always somewhere else." - W.G. Sebald, Vertigo

In my work I try to develop ways of speaking about physical displacement, cultural dislocation and the inevitable visual and conceptual juxtapositions that arise from attempts to represent place not simply physically but historically and metaphorically as well. I am increasingly drawn to the task of representing specific moments of convergence, intersection and resonance, which, I believe, capture the essence of travel.
