About Me

ARTIST STATEMENT

 

I am a minimalist in both my life and my art. 


In representational photography, the subject being photographed is the object of interest. In minimalist photography, the image itself is the object of interest. These images often have a highly graphic quality, with an emphasis on geometric forms and contrast. The object or scene being photographed is sometimes presented in a way that renders it unrecognizable.


Through minimalism, I try to encourage people to notice the patterns, shapes and colours that surround them, and thus enrich their lives through a new visual awareness.


I have exhibited my work in Canada, the United States and Europe. My works hang in both private and public collections in Canada, the United States, Europe and New Zealand.
