Flatfile Collection

Artist Statement

I explore the subject of containers manufactured in the United States in the twentieth century. My work uses flattened boxes and other materials mostly in degrees of disintegration and each resembling, somehow, something you may have seen before (perhaps in the history of painting or sculpture.) They are hung as objects—framed (shadow box) with the edges of the paper visible—and not flattened, laminated, matted or mounted, emphasizing their spatial, sculptural quality. The viewer is struck by the trompe l’oeil quality of the high-resolution images enlarged to 44 x 55 inches. My work is for sale through the Giampietro Gallery in New Haven.
