AutoExuvium is an ongoing body of work that explores the concept of automobiles as “shells” or outer skin for those encased within them. The scars they bear suggest ‘impact’ literally and symbolically and suggest a strained relationship with their environment.  Idealized visions of mechanical beauty are subverted to something tarnished and tortured yet still alluring.  By compressing and pulling the digital file’s data the wrecked car degenerates further and serves as an uneasy, modern vanitas.

EXPOSED 2011: Figure and Ground
Annual Exhibition of Photography

On View during CONTACT Festival: May 5-22, 2011
Opening Reception: May 5, 2011 7pm-10pm

The photographic image is a construction of figure and ground. We perceive and recognize shapes and structure through a scenic agenda. Exposed 2011 explores how photography inherently directs our attention, delineates the ways viewers perceive environments and understand the world around us.
