Artist’s Statement

Mystery. Knowing and not knowing. The past, the future, and the space in between.

What lies between an initial idea and a finished work of art is what is interests me. To force a result is to confine the infinite. Ambiguity and not knowing are a little spooky but, my, what an adventure.

“Entre los gitanos, no se leen las manos.” Among the gypsies, they don’t read palms.

What I like…

… I like tradition juxtaposed with just about anything else. I am excited by “found” notions. In making documentaries, I like “found” footage. By that I mean discovering two pieces of footage that I never considered placing next to each other, then realize they are the perfect match. Like a cornfield and a red heart, a jail cell and a ferris wheel (film Rita of the Sky). I like a traditional Oriental dance movement followed by a Jose Limon leg gesture (choreography). I like a scientific explanation of heat followed by a written description of a person walking the desert in a wetsuit on a scorching summer day (book Crossing with the Virgin).
