Life is laced with shadows and emotions. Shadows hide the things we strive to keep from the world around - from both our enemies who hate us the most and those whom we love more than anything. For me, the shadows contain the truth of any matter. The hidden passion beneath the glance. The hidden hunger beneath the passion. The hidden person beneath the persona. My art is oftentimes about uncovering barely enough of the truth to further enhance the intrigue of the visible world. Other times, it violently pushes the curtain away to expose the dark beauty of fantasies that should never be revealed and narratives that should remain locked away.
In both extremes, I find the joy of exploration and resolution. I expose the possibility that things exist in the darkness that directly influence what we see in the light. Old wisdom that has long been forgotten waits patiently to be found. But, most importantly, shared perspectives and experiences are captures in fractions of a second that tell the tales of our own feelings, struggles, regrets, fantasies, and memories. As abundantly, I witness peace, solitude, love, passion, and ecstasy. Sometimes, the two extremes collide in a way that create a visual so rare and intimate that I hesitate to share it. Mostly because they echo my own internal universe, the inner world that hides in my own shadows.
But there is no point in hiding the truths that others already know. Those who understand the messages I have encoded in my artwork are the very people they are created for - people who recognize themselves in the depth of the shadows... who see their story in my images as is they themselves were holding my lens.
