ephemeral photo collage and inkjet prints

This recent work is inspired by the idea that light is a symbol of time passing. Light transforms objects and atmosphere; it changes through the day, day by day, and through the seasons. My attention fixes on subtle visual experiences created by light, shadow and reflection; light through glass; light interacting within architectural spaces; shadows that become the essence of things.

I use the frame here as emblematic of architectural elements; the windows, and door frames, the structures we view the world through so much of the time

I've used both collected imagery, and my own photographs to create temporary collages I photograph.

The titles are inspired by the life and poetry of Emily Dickinson. I feel a resonance with the idea of being sequestered in one’s space. I relate to the image of the poet, tucking her ideas in her apron pocket through the day, to arrange into poems later in the privacy of her room.
