I have been fascinated by astronomy and outer space. When NASA offered to allow the public to download images from the Hubble telescope, I was one of the first to sign on. Using my artwork, I have finally entered the space beyond our earth.
Blending reality, I have integrated the sea into abandoned rooms or incorporated buildings with the sea. The components of these Photographic Montages are made up of images taken in different countries and far flung coastlines.
Americans can be eager to destroy old buildings and replace them with quickly built new ones. I am drawn to the ones that are abandoned because I am afraid that they will disappear from our memories.
I juxtaposed the neglected with the occupied, the deserted with the inhabited, one scene with another, or the past with the present. By combining reality with unreality I get beyond the traditional photograph.
