My Blue Wave  (1 of 14)
Hallucinatory nocturnal images created under the influence of weird fiction:
voracious landscapes; infernal light; alien geometries; and unstable, dissolving identities.
Unceasing creation: half-formed, mutable, still coming into being. Nothing yet fixed by perception or memory.
Ruins of a landscape that never was. A language I am slowly relearning.
A complete re-imagining of the tarot deck: 79 photographs and text drawn from over 20 years of work
and my own Major Arcana, suits, and court cards. Includes an interactive Celtic Cross spread.
Volatile images, composed sight unseen: poetic and grotesque, carnal and discarnate.
A fever dream of fleeting, nocturnal figures and luminous streets.
A romance of camera, car, and momentum. The overlooked, often inaccessible spaces between home and elsewhere.
Roadside landscapes shot through my favorite lens: the marred windows of cars in motion.
