In my current work I delve deeper into my fascination with psychology, particularly how perceptions and beliefs influence human behavior and, in effect, create reality. I examine these phenomena by crafting narrative vignettes, applying visual layers that contain scientific and superstitious facets. Divided drawers and boxes serve as polyptychs, highlighting different elements of a story in separate compartments, a technique I borrowed from medieval gothic art. I reflect on how these containers can function to hide secret contents and yet have the potential to reveal them.
Primarily a photographer and assemblage artist, I use materials that relate to the specific story I am trying to convey. Found objects from bygone times mixed with those found in nature are meant to evoke a Wunderkammer effect, but each object represents a key narrative element, as does the photographic imagery I include.
