Arts at the Armory
191 Highland Avenue -
Im in love with moments. Visual moments, captured by the lens. Life moments, shared through writing. Beautiful moments, represented in beads and paper. Dream moments, made tangible in assemblage.
My photography is of found moments, out on my walks through mostly urban landscapes, taken with my iPhone camera. Im particularly pulled to tiny details and bizarre, unexpected finds (who knew there were so many tiny statues in cities?!?) I do a small amount of post-production in-app, usually cropping and color correction/light balance, and I note wherever I use a filter.
When I create with beads or paper, I tend to focus on a single pendant or moment of emphasis in the design, and fill in the supporting details around it. With my newest endeavors in assemblage/shadowboxes/diorama and mixed media dolls, I bring the physical spaces I see in my dreams into the waking world.
Favorite artists: Frida Kahlo, Andy Goldsworthy, Jim Henson, Joseph Cornell, Rachel Mello
