Artist Statement

The still life photographs of mid century kitchen appliances were inspired by the poignancy of items once useful but now in the realm of vintage nostalgia. I tried to capture their elegance and sculptural quality as art objects. The paper still life is a response to a call for artists to explore torn or folded objects.

Early in my long career as a fine art photographer, I used a twin lens Rolleifex to make melancholy but evocative black and white landscapes of Martha’s Vineyard. Encouragement from painters and photographers I respected led me to develop a style that obscures boundaries between painting and photography, emphasizing shape and atmosphere over content or locale. I strive for a level of mystery and poignancy in my work.
