Artist Statement

Internal Formations explores aspects of the complex relationship between physical and emotional perception. Perception of the environment is limited to the way in which objects and light fill space; what is sensed physically through perceived sensations. The purity of concentration in the present is influenced by emotions. Images reflecting individual distress (isolation, dislocation, alienation) aim to represent emotions of the past or fear of emotional distress in the future. In Internal Formations, the camera acts as an intermediary tool of investigation and composition of a mundane personal space. The resulting images document cyclical changes in subject matter and composition as they relate to recurring emotional states, and seek to transform the banal into an image of contemplation.
