Artist Statement

 

 

My methodology emulates that of a historian and enters into the arena of archaeologists, archivists and curators. Historians write, and re-write history privileging certain evidence while imposing specific agendas, to reshape history.  Confronting history as a construction; I provoke viewers through historical representation, unmasking illusions of precision and truth.  By deconstructing and analyzing the way the historical record is fabricated, my work reveals the futile nature of preserving an accurate history.
