Time is slipping. A moment ago, this image stood alone. Now it catches against that other one. It flips upside down. The pixels snag, are turned into paint. One pixel becomes liquid and is stretched, poured, smoothed over the surface of the image. With digital tools, one photograph is painted into the fabric of another. Two moments appear as parallel visions, torn and spliced together.

In my work, I attempt to expand space, to break through the surface of the image, to impose barriers. I value perceptual failures, and my work contains real boundaries: literal walls, windows, and frames that serve as entry points or that limit access.
