  • apocalyptic archaeology

    Apocalyptic Archaeology features works that are depictions of a ruined world. The works are meditations on the brevity of life, and reveal the awareness of passing time, erosion and decay, and the ultimate deterioration of manmade artifacts, such as architecture, interiors, and landscapes.

  • dreams and memories

    Dreams and Memories includes works that explore the intangible and inescapable realm of the psyche. The artists pose questions about the nature and meaning of recalled experiences, and about the way in which dreams and memories intersect and even morph from one level of consciousness to another.

  • voyeurs/provocateurs

    Voyeur/Provocateurs includes subversively witty scenes-satirical commentaries on art, culture, and politics. These works make the viewer into Peeping Toms that spy on secret scenes.

This artwork is on view at the Museum of Arts and Design in the exhibition Otherworldly: Optical Delusions and Small Realities.

I like that we all see the world with different eyes. Individual experience shapes our perception of our ambience. By building models of fictional places, I provide the setting for viewers to start playing with their perception of certain aspects of life. And with the details I show—and those I don't show—I invite viewers to engage with their own imaginative stories.

I invent the image, the place, the composition, the light. I also build the model. I even complete the work with my normal, small camera. But I leave the technical considerations of producing the big picture to a professional photographer.

I am not interested in reality. Because there is none.
