I chronicle the impermanence, continuous evolution, and elusive forces that form the visual fabric of city life. My work lies at the intersection of fine art, documentary, advertising, popular culture and archaeology. My current projects include “wall cuts” (panels in the New York City subway system where print advertising is hung) and “urban topographies,” which investigates features of the urban landscape, including building facades, construction fences, doors, mailboxes, and vintage signs. I am particularly interested in how these subjects are manipulated by street artists working independently and further transformed by natural forces. The motivation behind my work is to call attention to arresting combinations of color, form and texture that daily surround us, in the process expanding our definition of what we call art, how it is made, and where it appears.
