The anonymous figure is the latest subject from my personal collection of vintage images. This series is about transformation through translocation. An original mixed media artwork consisting of a photograph that has been scanned, manipulated, printed on transparent material and mounted to a cradled panel with paper collage, acrylic paint, epoxy resin, and matte varnish. Many of the figures incorporated into the artwork are taken from my extensive collection of one-of-a-kind antique daguerreotypes and mid-century snapshots. Each photograph in the acquisition is chosen because of its ability to simultaneously mirror intimate and universal facets of the human experience. The ambiguous figures often have a familiarity and represent archetypical image of masculinity and the Everyman. For this reason they are dealt with as a kind of self-portrait. Appropriation of these ‘forgotten’ photographs is an essential part of my art making process. Repurposing the images with new content not only builds upon the original history of the photographs, but creates a transcendence of time and a revitalization of the past. I have often expressed that I may not necessarily be the photographer of these relics, but through my artistic interpretation I feel I am their curator.

Throughout my education in photography I worked to combine diverse materials and techniques with various photographic processes. That love of experimentation has continued today as I explore mixed-media collage and abstract acrylic painting in my latest body of work. My collage pieces consist of found and reclaimed paper ephemera repurposed into energetic, abstract color-scapes. I have an extensive collection of blue prints, vintage road maps, book pages, letters of correspondence and various other source items which evoke the nostalgia of my Midwestern upbringing and roots of my artistic cultivation. Inspiration is derived from the inherent meaning in these documents and when combined with layers of paint, three-dimensional objects, photo transfer, etc. I build upon the original history of the material and create an enhanced narrative. My latest body of abstract acrylic paintings uses my familiar grid motif as a compositional framework. Color theory, balance, texture, and intuition all play an important role in the creation of this work. The satisfying actions of mixing colors and applying paint with a palette knife make the process of studio time very meditative. The paintings take shape organically with each color applied meticulously to conceal or reveal the layer below. One color choice dictates the next until an overall rhythmic harmony is achieved.
