The Role of Art

Since being involved in the art world for over the past 30 years, many things have changed.  Trends come and go, notions of what is considered “good” art vary, and what is popular in contemporary art fluctuates.  While these things are constantly being redefined, I’ve continued to question and contemplate the function of art in […]

October 2014; Back Underwater

2014 has been a year of phenomenal workshops and lots of travel.  I’ve had a blast being able to teach across the globe within the past year, even though it has left little time for shooting.  Feeling inspired from the excellent work of so many of my students, I managed to get out of the […]

The CONtraption!
