Page 1 | Biography


Using photography as my primary medium, I have long been interested in creating fictionalized landscapes inhabited by a cast of invented characters. Throughout my work, is an interest in American mythos, humor, narrative clichés, and cinematic traditions that become restaged in unexpected ways.

I most recently completed a project at the Society for Contemporary Photography in Kansas City which included several bodies of work based on the spatial and temporal aspects of train travel. One component of this piece was a series of installations created in the sleeper car of a cross-country train. Each day on the train I created a different sculptural piece and invited other passengers to view the work created in my temporary sleeper car/studio.

Another recent body of work, entitled, 'Westward Ho,' uses installation as a form of narrative to explore the notion of the American West as an invented space. The installation features several bodies of work- including photography, film, video, and sculpture- which engage the viewer in an on-going dialogue regarding representations of the West and the means in which history becomes displaced by mythology. The installation traces the historical mediums used to represent the West, including the painted panorama, epic landscape painting, photography, the stereoview, and the Hollywood Western. used to represent the West, including the painted panorama, epic landscape painting, photography, the stereoview, and the Hollywood Western.
