DETECTIVES OF FICTION & WOMEN OF MYSTERY
Inspired by today’s super-abundance of visual information, I am treating imagery from disparate sources as transmutable raw material. Intermixing my photos with elements from popular as well as historical sources conjures up unsettling entities and raucous scenarios. Relics from our communal visual archive are mingled with contemporary images, tipped over, mashed up, and pushed back—creating jumps through space and time and echoing the startling juxtapositions of contemporary visual culture.
