My new body of work focuses on the idea of being Found. Using found objects and other items from everyday ‘non-art’ origins, my work is about life, death and being found. The subtle presence of history and not-so-subtle mass-produced objects pervade our lives and dominate our thoughts; through our memories, or environments, and our desires. In my work I attempt to make images that show how how these forces gather to affect our identity and ultimately, what we strive for. In this body of work I continue to explore the struggle we face of our looming and eventual mortality, our often reluctant engagement with the eternal, and what it means to be ‘found’ by our Creator.
