A few words of clarification: I have created this website to give viewers a sense of the range of my artwork over a portion of my career. The work ranges from quite straightforward photography to relatively experimental and provisional forms in other media. While somewhat atypical, there are many precedents dating back to the renaissance and continuing trough to today, for instance the current example of Gerhard Richter's work. To me, this is not a perplexing situation, but I readily acknowledge that many will find all this juxtaposed variety unusual---in fact, I hope you are a little bewildered. I think that's as it should be. In my experience with my own work, the peculiar range of my influences, and as a curator who has worked with and interviewed scores of artists, I have grown very suspicious of regularity and easy patterns teased out from artists' careers. Please see the "documents" section for further discussion of this and other matters relating to the work.
