Work from her oeuvre.

“My work involves demonstrating, in both image and process, the intangible connection between signifier and the signified. By photographic fragments of imagery that is site-specific to the viewer (a book, a chair, a light, a building), I am compelling the viewer to consider only what is in front of himlher visually. Through a series of input / output “distancing” in process (real object- photograph- print- re-photograph- print- real ”object”), I am able to amplify the way in which a viewer utilizes these visual signs in order to signify what is actually present The distancing in process and the chaotic piling of imagery illustrates viscerally the frustration of a viewer to untangle the knot of the physical and the implied, the tangible and the psychological.

My focus lies in the comparison of the way that we perceive the physical world to the way that we traditionally read art, specifically photography. I am interested in this willing detachment of the spectator from what is represented in favor of what represents it” -
