Art Statement

The Digital Inverts, or Dupes, resemble emulsive prints such as cyanotypes and albumen prints and other 19th century photographic processes. They are deviations from my initial drawings that reference the past and function as shadows of the original works. An essential component in their mirroring processes lies in an implied transition from the corporeal to the spiritual – between conscious and unconscious worlds, in an effort to elucidate inherited or invisible histories. The simple one to two-word naming system correlates to their primordial aspects. In titling each piece, I attempt to describe a simple, guttural translation of form similar to the origins of speech. Pseudo-science functions as subtext to cloak themes of deception and desire.
