For the last 5 years, I have been intuitively juxtaposing images and found text, not only as a reflection on what the text refers to but what it might imply within the visceral experience of the photographic print.
Because I live at 7200 ft, the sky is ever-present and ever-changing. It captures my attention and elicits a photographic response almost daily. My concern with these images is one of empowering its print with an emotional or poetic equivalence to the text as a way of reconciling this moment in time and history.
The coincidence of the 2017 inauguration and my approaching career shift from arts administration and curation to my studio practice ten months later acutely focused my attention on time and place—my time in my life, my geographic place, my view from this place in the context of national and world events. Time and place have always been part of my photographic inquiries but not within the realm of politics. Thus began the View from Home series (#viewfromhomephotoproject).
"Every thing is not all right " is drawn from the years 2017 - 2021 and reflects a time when the fast-paced, immediate, and reactive hyper-social media escalated dramatically. Truth and lies. Discord and division. Pandemic. Climate. Democracy. All challenged.
