My work focus on space and shadow. I build landscapes from shadows, which like shadows, scatter and disappear. After all, a shadow is not a picture of an object; it is a thing unto itself. A shadow is a stretched, distorted, wavering, fleeting, and misleading impression of an object. It is a ghost playing tricks and I aim to capture that intangible thing, making explicit that which is implicit.
