Artist Statement

These prints, from the series Branford Supply Pond, extend my ongoing concerns with domestic, interior and familiar terrains. The Supply Pond, nearby my home, has been a place of escape and contemplation for me for many years, and I have taken hundreds of photographs of its seasonal changes, growth and decay. These photographs serve as a ground for many of my collages and prints: drawn upon, deconstructed, reduced at times to a line alone or built up layer by layer by the monotype process, the photographic image itself transforms. My interest lies in the dynamic interplay between residue and mark, evidence and response, memory remade by memory: clarity arrived at through chance and complication.
