Artist's Statement

Things that are seen as elementary and basic are often overlooked because we deal with them on a daily basis or have been aware of them for a long enough period of time to lose interest.  In this series I wanted to show how our most rudimentary forms and concepts still have artistic relevance.
The basic concepts that are paired in these pieces are concerned with ephemeral and physical representations of time.  Balance, by its very nature, cannot be static.  It represents only the present state of something.  Photography, by its very nature, is static.  It represents only the past state of something.  These images depict a certain harmonious contradiction.  They are oxymoronic icons.
