Opening Reception: Saturday, December 8th, 2012 6pm – 9pm

Artist Statement:

The striking photographs inside the “Bureau of Mines Manual of First Aid Instruction” are the point of departure for this body of work. The process of making paintings of these photographs offers a strategy for understanding why this source material is so compelling to me. These paintings are blended with even more found photographs, natural history, science textbooks, medical illustrations, clip art, schematic diagrams, and popular culture to produce a great stew of images. My wager is that by combining all of the things I am interested in, chance will reward me with new textures, meanings, and associations that could not be obtained any other way. Curiosity and anticipation sustain me through the laborious process of editing, combining, and layering.


The exhibition runs December 8th, 2012 – February 1st, 2013

Gallery Hours: Monday – Sunday 12pm – 8pm
