Over the past 15 years I have been making work influenced by Niagara Falls complex history. I may have an obsession with this region. The invention of widespread electricity, Native American culture, industrialization, the Manhattan Project, daredevils, Love Canal - the stories it holds are limitless and extreme in nature. Niagara's beauty can hardly be captured in a photograph, but what's even more powerful is its sound. Standing next to the falls with your eyes closed is overwhelming and exhilarating every single time. The millions of gallons of water pouring over the brink sucks you into a vacuum of sound so loud it's obliterating and silent all at once. To me this is home.
My primary studio and residence is in New York City, but I also frequently work in Western New York with a satellite studio there as well. Feel free to contact me for a studio visit!
