My photograms build on and develop my work in abstract black and white photography. Over the past 20 years I have focused on experimental photography; making large-scale, mural size prints, layering multiple negatives and solarizating prints in the darkroom. The photograms continue this investigation of the medium, offering further avenues for research beyond the traditional mechanics of the camera-made image.
Although I use the materials of photography: photo paper, chemistry and an enlarger, my work is closely aligned to historical and current work in improvisational abstraction, and related to a minimalist aesthetic, in contemporary painting, sculpture and drawing. I consider the elements of art; form, line, and space as a starting point for the compositions. The photograms occupy a space between photography, drawing, and sculpture, in process, surface quality and composition.
