Artist Statement

I favour a manual re-appropriation of a traditional medium and use digital means to reinforce the non-figurative aspect of the final image. By exploring the physical properties of the traditional Polaroid print in various ways, I decompose and denaturalize it to reconstruct my own images from the process. Once printed and framed, a third dimension is created, rendering the image and the object with an illusory depth that is created by the transparent layers of actual Polaroid emulsion.
