I am fascinated by the ways in which we use images as shrines and tombs for our memories, how we desperately try to preserve our past and present. At times my work veers toward the sculptural and at others it is elementally photographic. The images included in this book seem to stray from work I have done dealing with my own history, but originate from a similar impulse. My mother tells me I used to lay on my stomach and watch ants in the grass. I remember catching June bugs off of her wild roses in a styrofoam cup, and finding box turtles, and waiting to hear the cicadas come out in summer, and getting tobacco juice from a grasshopper on my fingers, and catching lightning bugs in a pickle jar. I want my work, no matter what form it takes, to function as a mechanism for me to explore my memories, and as a catalyst for you to explore yours.
