"Chromatose explores dimension, color, space, and detail. The underlining reason I am so drawn to this work is because of the wonderful serendipity that the work promotes. Whether it is the mystery the viewer experiences when looking at these high-gloss images or the unpredictability of using a scanner, during the creative process, I hope to relay that feeling of mystery that i feel when i make the work. To create the imagery i use a flat bed scanner. I am able to create the compositions on sheets of glass and then bring them to the scanner and wait to see the outcome. Because of some of the materials i am using, the compositions shift and change while being scanned. I want to raise questions, this is one of the reasons I decided to have creative writers contribute their creative response to the work. I would like to think that the work is open-ended enough that when anyone spends time with it their impressions are unique to how they are feeling in that moment."
