Artist's Statement

In my videos, I combine stylized and surreal imagery and plot lines with a sense of emotional truth. I want the story to feel real to the viewer in the way that a fantastic dream can feel real—on a visceral level. Inspired by Gogol's "The Nose" and traditional Japanese fairy tales, Seed (7 minute video) tells the story of a man who, in losing pieces of himself, undergoes a transformation. Moth (10 minute video) is partly based on Elizabeth Bishop’s poem The Man-Moth, and follows three moth-like characters who are drawn to elusive sources of light. In both pieces, each on-screen element is created from painted plaster, cloth, or cardboard. The layering of materials, and the sculpting of light on simple forms help to make this world feel like a three-dimensional, inhabitable painting.
