ARTIST STATEMENT:   These works are images of water collaged together to create the impression of depth on a flat surface. The collages are then adhered to custom made wood blocks that jut 3 inches from the wall, furthering the dimensional confusion.  I am especially interested in photographing bodies of water and the sky as they both represent depth often completely beyond our human perception and therefore rendered flat, a facade of our imagined understood potential. All of my work relates to perception. I use the optical device of illusion and confusion to nudge the audience to think of the multiple realities existing simultaneously, always. Somehow all of these multiple perspectives are both unimaginably wrong and right. We can experience the same event and have completely different takes on what happened or what it means. Meaning is found somewhere between, within, amidst and beyond these concurrent realities.
