Some say all time exists at once. The indefinite continued progress of existence and events in the past, present, and future are regarded as a whole. As always, I am vastly interested in reality, so this cohesion is mesmerizing to me.

After spending the last several months immersed in the past and questioning what's to come, I am ready to embrace the future. But as I set out, the past is with me, transformed. All the losses are still there, but there is a brightness forming that allows me to see the entirety, the unity of time and place.

I create art by altering and manipulating photos. My images are reconstructed in the computer and are both true and false. There is an ambiguity that allows the viewers to project their imaginings and meanings on my images.

You could call my work a digital montage, as my handiwork is readily apparent: something was synthesized, staged, constructed or performed. I am not a photographer, but an artist who deploys photography in my creative process.
