Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.

There’s something about Deadwood SD

Behind the curtain

Some things I find funny.

I found some of my old photographs that I took years ago.

Back in 2000 when I still had my maiden name and I was considered young.

I had a showing of this series in some off the beaten path gallery.

I wrote my artist statement the night before late.

It went something like this.

This series of photographs is called ‘Behind the Curtain’. It’s a subjective approach about cats broken down to its most simpliest form and enhanced by all elements that intervene to shroud the subject. Subtle transparencies emerge and shadows distort but the work is not about clarity but reality. The pictures bring the viewer closer to what exactly is present and in original form. The perception is geared toward the cat but the viewer keeps coming back to the curtain as the light intensifies, flattens and solidifies the curtain. The curtain stands alone with its subtle folds, elegant drapes and soft patterns. Even though we can’t get past the curtain the cat is still identifiable.
