    A Bestiary

    A collection of beasts as self and others’ portraits.
    My artistic intent with this portrait series is to challenge conventional perceptions of what portraiture is by presenting the photographed subject within a framework of the uncanny.
    A carefully chosen silhouette of an animal is used as a stage to arrange/collage together parts of photographs shot by me, in a studio setting, of a subject: either myself, a hired model or personal acquaintance. I ask the subject to pose in a wide variety of positions and expression, with various lighting, the intent being to collect a broad library of body parts and facial expressions that I can then later carefully cut out and collage together into the animal I have chosen for them. Each is a portrait of both subject and animal.

    new works on paper- cone/spills

    recent series of process-based 3-D works on paper using hand drawn gridded patterns of circles, which are then half-way cut out and folded/formed into cones, and glued into place. the paper is then mounted to a board, and tilted. The cones facing up are sequentially filled with liquid rubber, then the piece is rotated, and the process is repeated until all cones are filled. Each rotation of the tilted piece causes semi-controlled spills of the rubber. It is then left to rest flat and cure overnight.

    works on paper - prints

    a suite of 10 works, 26’ x 26”, cured polysulphide rubber/rubber residue on Karma cover paper
    depicting each of the artist’s 10 fingerprints.
    each fingerprint is inked onto a blank 35mm slide, and then projected and inscribed onto the rubber-residue coated paper. The prepared paper is then laid flat and the inscribed pattern is traced in liquid rubber, with a rubber-filled syringe.
    the rubber lines are allowed to cure, then peeled off, revealing white paper underneath.
    the paper is then rotated 180 degrees, and the print traced in rubber again, and allowed to cure.
    images are ordered left hand, thumb to pinky, right hand, thumb to pinky.

    works on paper - 1995-2000

    early works on paper exploring the use of polysulphide rubber (a curable mold-making rubber)
    this rubber is a 2 part liquid rubber that, when mixed with it’s catalyst, cures into a black flexible material
    these works are very process-oriented, and utilize grids to frame geometries, cursive writings, etc.
    often the rubber is peeled off and re-applied, and depending on the paper used, leaves behind lovely grey residues

    PPP (Peter Pan Project)

    In this series of staged photographs from 2003, the artist wears a home-made Peter Pan costume with the intent/goal of capturing Peter Pan’s shadow. Inspired by an event early on in J.M. Barrie’s famous tale of the magical boy who never grows up, in which Peter’s runaway shadow is chased about the room until finally captured and sewn on again by protagonist Wendy.
    These 9 images portray the shadow as subject, with the Peter character the peripheral “projector”.
