I am a conceptual artist whose installations, video and works on paper focus on issues of social justice and/ or the environment. The source material for all my work, collectively titled SILENT VOICES is specific: news stories found in the New York Times. My images and materials are purposely selected to have an initial surface attraction which, upon closer examination reveal more difficult content.
The primary themes I am exploring are the global migrations of immigrants, migrants and refugees, and the collateral damage that ensues as they make increasingly perilous journeys in search of safety and survival. Not incidentally many of the works reference allied issues of environmental change and human trafficking.
