Opening reception: Saturday May 9th, 6-10pm

The Front

Utilizing the early DaDaist use of montage, I want to explore the possibilities of photography in the digital era on determining what is considered to be representational, document-like, or narrative in content. Contradictions in context, and color, are employed to create images that can be both fantastic and absurd, disturbing and beautiful.

Caution: Objects in the frame may be more rendered than materially perceived. Please proceed with reckless abandon toward the exit in a conceptual manner. Discordant side effects not solely attributed to reproduction may include: hallucinatory spectacles, retinal dismemberment of the “Natural World”, contextual time/space fluctuations, still frame mobilization, and residual commonplace anomalies.
