"Believed Imaginings" is a photographic collage project, where each image is made by cutting up and then combining hundreds of photographs while simultaneously doing the same to memories, dreams, and experiences.

I think these new combinations of personal memories with common history shed the burden they would carry if they were too specific to one memory or historical event. Yet, I believe they still retain visual cues that hint at their source(s).

I tend to imagine my protagonist as experiencing a sort of coming of age. An internal pull between a wonder and cynicism, childhood and adulthood. I try to externalize this internal conflict in my images through depicting moments of confrontation. Fragile moments that are caught between possibilities of something almost surreal and implications of things that are quite possibly tragic.

All images are available as 15 x 15" and 32 x 32"  digital prints made in editions of 25 and 10, respectively, for $400 (small) and $700 (large).

 

Please call: (312) 266 - 2350 for prices of specific pieces.
Prices are print only unless otherwise indicated.
