Artist Statement

As a haptic artist I engage in an intuitive directorial process of manipulating paper, emulsion, light, chemistry and time to generate camera-less photographs. I construct these art objects to reflect material experience rather than engage in simple documentation or image transmission. This technique explores the flexibility of photographic material and elasticity of photographic identity.

This work employs an experimental process of painting on light sensitive paper with photographic chemicals to create images rather than reveal them. This type of photo, called a Chemigram, is processed in daylight escaping the demands of a darkroom to manage exposure. I use unconventional materials to mediate the papers response to light and chemistry, inviting chance as a partner in authorship.
