Artist Biography:
Artist Statement: People try to make sense out of things which they see or experience. Our brains, whether innately or conditioned to be so, do not like it when things do not make sense. My images rely on this desire for things to be logical. Juxtaposing banal, everyday scenes with something extraordinary forces the viewer to reconcile the absurdity of the situation by connecting the different pieces. The images are not part of a single narrative, but all exist in the same world, a world consisting of memories that never happened. These false memories are very familiar, photography and video. The washed-out colors as well as the family settings harken back to a time when families sat down around the kitchen table. Connecting this shared perceptual history with puzzling imagery leads to visual narrative which is unique to each viewer.
