I use the black and white photographic medium to produce abstractions that bring forth diverse surrealist qualities and reveal images suggestive of solar flares, microscopic structures, man-made and ordinary found objects. These unique black and white prints are produced in the darkroom with analog materials with careful attention to process and materiality. Tactics include projecting imagery, painting with light sources over objects, and by the chemical manipulation of the medium. The concept of how a composite camera-less photographic image can be perceived and decoded by the viewer is a process I wanted to engage. A profound ambiguity exists in photography that can transcend the underlying meaning beyond the image as a straightforward record.
