“Rewinding Forward ” is an exploration of an inner story revealed through an outer situation. There needs to be a certain dissonance with an edgy quality in the photographs that I enjoy making. My studio practice is a guide and a way of rewinding forward. I’m interested in the exploration of psychological states as a way of creating labyrinths between earth and heaven through my camera. The making and rearranging are intertwined in a tug of poetic surrender. If everything is aligned then there’s the possibility of connection. I’m trying to express a lifeline through a continuum of inquiry and associations. The forward and backward hooks up with earlier experiences as to transform, update and reveal new creative dispensations. This body of work is a dialectic between grief and anger, life and death, hope and mourning.
Transformation is a bridge with the potential for magic, alchemy and poetry. Poetry is often a spring board in my creative practice. The last stanza in Marianne Moore’s poem “Nevertheless” is a magical example.
“The weak overcomes its
menace, the strong over-
comes itself. What is there
like fortitude! What sap
went through that little thread
to make the cherry red!”
