Artist Statement

The Lake House series is a personal narrative that explores the deconstruction of familiar photographs through collage and reconstruction of memory, time, and place. The artist uses photographs from family photo albums as both visual and thematic resource, focusing on a specific set of photos which reimagines two lake houseseen over two different time periods. This ongoing series has developed into familial and abstract self portraiture for the artist.
