ARTIST STATEMENT

Submerged

Being underwater is a state of buoyancy, fluidity and weightlessness. Unlike the open sea, water in a pool offers an ambiguous spatial depth with a color range from indigo to cerulean. The figures in these images emerge from the blue field surrounded by fabric and tulle. The color blue is a mindset for me, it speaks of desire, daydreams, blue gestures and blue thoughts. In this state of being submerged, we are brought to a place of sensory awareness and uncertain reality. Light, reflections and the confusion of materials and figure produce a world both mysterious and defined by light. 

The images were made in various pools in Akumal Mexico and Dallas Texas. I use a high resolution digital camera in a special underwater housing. The finished images are ‘straight’, unmanipulated photographs.

The photographs are produced as archival pigment prints on Hahnemuhle William Turner paper, in limited editions.
