Statement

I choose components from computers and arrange them to mimic an imagined urban space. I'm curious about the way our brains decipher what we are looking at and the way the senses interpret and formulate visual information. Our brains take a short cut based on past experience to create a construct of what it believes we see. The brain also pulls and pushes information from memory and present perception to build our reality. Many viewers will see my images as real urban landscapes because the brain takes a leap using information based on the way urban landscapes are supposed to look. In my latest work, I print the photographs on canvas and warp them over the stretcher, adding new perceptual and emotional dimensions.
