There is richness in the materiality of light, color, texture, organic patterning, and natural motion. I want to draw attention to the complex relationship in those nuances that are easily overlooked. The mystery and intrigue in those seemingly unimportant tributes of pure aesthetic materiality have inspired my painterly sensibility to capture the moment as an image.
My editing decisions are based on how the patterns, colors, or textures created balance and rhythm once placed together. A harmonious stream of experiences is a result of the juxtaposition or combination of shots. My collected images function as a palate which I use to “paint” the composition of a single channel video. The flowing arrangement of images provides an opportunity for meditation and absorption into a pure celebration of light.
Rips in the Awning was created and exhibited in 2006 as a studio art thesis for Colgate University. It was projected large in a theater on opening night and exhibited for the remainder of the show on a flat screen in the gallery.
