Abstract/Artist Statement

My art is about the use of multiple perspectives, or the ideas of cubism. Cubism attempts to recreate an environment in a way that is divided by angles, geometric planes and changing the direction a subject is viewed from. Photographing an area with a cubist approach allows me to interpret the space in my own manor, while maintaining the most of the natural aesthetics. When the image is viewed in it's entirety, the photo represents a real space. My interpretation of the cubist method allows me to abstract the area and produce sections based on spacial planes. Each plane is a portrayal of the environment from a different perspective. These planes are based on a person turning their head side to side, plus up and down, to view the space with their body in a single location relative to the subject matter. My works attempt to challenge things that are generally assumed about the environment we live in. The interacting planes of my photographs create abstractions of realities that would not be typically questioned. The ability of my work to question what is real and what is not real with the utilization of cubist concepts provides a unique experience of the photographed environment.
