Bio and Statement: I have a natural affinity for surrealism, magic realism, and anyone making work that plays with perspective, reality, branching paths, reflections, self deception, the subconscious, and hidden worlds. I’m an artist who thinks of 2-D media, 3-D media, new media, and performance art as mediums that can be blended in complementary ways to serve a narrative. Books and art work that inspire me to create are often works that push the boundary between realities by jumping into different mediums. The leap requires mental and/or physical participation on the audience/reader’s part to enact. I think it would be great to encounter more books that are not all electronic or all paper. If a “novel” has a play-along CD, mp3, video, and/or graphic novel set inside a “traditional” looking novel or Ebook, I appreciate the collage of form. It’s unusual. It’s artistic. It encourages creativity. It’s not a story you’re going to forget very easily because it’s challenged you and shown you another way to “read.”
My work at Bigfoot Creative for the month of April will blend elements of installation, photography, and printmaking.
