about curatorial
My photographic art practice transforms images of the mundane into the sublime. The ordinary is invisible; we see it and pass it by. I make visible that which we take for granted. Inspired by Wabi Sabi, a philosophy and aesthetic that comes from Japanese Buddhism, I utilize marks as temporal narratives. Vestiges are intimate and revealing, unique and historical. My images capture the beauty of things imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete; of things modest and humble. They address the covert value of labor, in particular with respect to time.
