In my work I use metal salts and photosensitive chemicals to intervene in the development and fixing of photographs, engaging the historical and material conditions in which photographs are produced and persist.
The resulting images inhabit a formal vocabulary that parallels gestural abstraction while also evoking the phenomenological quality of the photograph: erasures and voids, noise and interference: visual distortions which elicit the psychic distortions and abstractions of subjectivity.
In making photographs oriented towards an interior space (both material and mental) I'm interested in the idea of the photograph as excavation, in the twinned sense of a physical and psychic dredging. The photochemical processes redolent of subterranean mineral development . . . the photograph as fossil . . .
