Artist Statement
my new abstract work is an evolution of several artistic expressions: dance, photography and painting. As a trained ballet dancer movement is merged into the process of photography which produces abstract images with a painterly quality. After years of study I finally found a process that utilizes my training in each discipline, and represents a culmination of expression as an artist.
An old superstition says that photography steals the soul. Photographs reveal more than a reflection. With longer exposures, I capture more time and movement from the subject or scene. In turn, sometimes I dance just a bit with the camera to express my presence as the photographer. I compress together multiple exposures creating a conceptual ‘film’ in a single image. The resulting image captures the spirit of the landscape and the essence of our dance. My abstract photography is more than a window to the soul in which you can peak. It is an open door into which you can step and continuously explore.
