Artist Statement - Blues City Art & Portraiture

Artist statement: During the time I was pursuing my Communications and Visual Art degree, I witnessed the changes within the photographic world with new computer technology in the late 80's and 90's. The once commanding darkroom was being replaced by the newest computer lab. I both embraced and questioned the digital world photography was being assimilated into. As I delved further into the basic concepts of photography; where it came from, what it meant, and where it was going. By looking critically and freshly at a well-known medium, I integrated infrared photography and current trend in cyanotype printing. This opened a creative outlet in art. Exploring and capturing light through formal and conceptual studies, I challenge traditional understanding of what a photograph is and how one is made. I emphasize process in art making, constructing conceptual reference to the medium itself. Combing cutting edge technology with the most historic of processes, I push the bounds of conventional photography to invoke fresh alternatives to creating and appreciating art.
