Currently on view at Marie Baldwin Gallery is "life," -- something all of us have in common Viewed casually, life might look like a two-person show: the photographer and the collagist. But if you take a closer look, it becomes obvious that the two bodies of work are tightly interlocked.
In the photographs there’s always a search for connections, and often you’ll find elements overlapping, becoming one. The multiple-exposure panoramas are literarily photographic collages: assemblages created in the camera, directly on the negative.
The collages, on the other hand, are compositions looking for a balance or a tension that would create the perfect photograph. With the freedom of creating everything from scratch and adding color, they become another animal, but the bones are the same.
