Photos

As I travel my camera is never far from me.  I rely upon the reference images I take in the construction of my sculptures and drawings.  Only recently have I begun to frame these photos and display them with my other work.




Senior Class Portraits
This is an installation of 40 images of barns taken by Shawn Herndon, David Gianfredi, and myself. They are all 4"x 4" mounted to foam core. The grid is flexible depending on space. I now have 100 more images taken on my travels to Idaho and Washington to add to this piece for the next installation. This piece was created for Beyond Structure: Representations of the American Barn - 2016-17. My wife might be correct in thinking I currently have a slight obsession with barns.





Vernacular architecture has become of more interest to me.  These grain elevators are outside Winifred, MT -- the area where my father was born. Taken Sept. 2015 while doing family history research.

Installation shot form Movement and Meaning: The Power of Pilgrimage 2014. I will be exploring more the combination of showing photographs and sculptures together.
