art statement

My images display the sublime and serene that is always present just beyond our awareness. I am fascinated by spontaneous order on the edge of chaos and the chaos that lurks just beyond the order that we create or perceive. My work combines traditional image-capture with the flexibility of the digital darkroom while maintaining the integrity of the scene as I perceived it. I also produce images that are altered to create a painterly effect by directly manipulating Polaroid film or employing the same techniques digitally.
