Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

'Semblance of Control' is comprised of four individual images brought together to bring forth a sense of colorful harmonics, geometric opposition and textured depth to the viewer. It soundly marks the transition in my creative process from shooting found objects in the world to creating works of my own, photographing them, combining them in post and finally to print. Within this process of creating objects, etc. to photograph, I've felt a deeper more connected feeling to the finished product of my work. This way of creating has also attributed to a more hands on approach to the art world for me in which I've begun to use and understand different material, which in turn has tremendously helped with the final work(s). Materials used in the making of 'Semblance of Control': acrylic paint, tracing paper, spray paint, epoxy, vinyl, glass.

Artist Profile

Born: 1979

Hometown: Youngstown, OH

Based in: Fayetteville, WV

Photography for me has been many things, though the one thing I’d rather not be called or labeled as is a Photographer. It does so happen that I use a camera to create my work and it is the most important physical tool used in my process, but it’s from within that my work is envisioned and brought to life. My journey with a camera started when I was in middle school. It was during a photography class that I fell in love with the process of arranging people, shapes, colors, lines, etc. into a rectangle, pressing the shutter and capturing them forever, frozen in time. My creative journey would lead me through many different subject phases and attempts to find a voice but it wasn’t until I broke free of literal and representational photography that I would find it.

To describe the motivation for my work today is like riding a wave. I attempt to keep my senses open to my current surroundings and be willing to see the world through my present emotions and simply create. The idea of a destination, or leaving the house with an image in mind has been dissolved from my creative process and has been replaced with capturing feelings, shapes, colors, lines, textures; acting out of intuition with my camera as opposed to creating something we have all seen and been associated with before.

When presenting my work I aspire to provoke something from within the viewer. To disarm them of their predispositions, allow them to wander their interior and get lost in the viewing. I wish to allow for the imagination to ebb and flow throughout the composition and drum up a conversation or simply leave them with a feeling previous to before.
