My work as a painter was immersed in the history of painted images, in the service of a feminist critique. My current photographic work is also dependent on the work of others, as I situate details of contemporary artists' production alongside more quotidian observations. I am not so much interested in the individual artists whose works I have photographed as in seeing how the components of their production reflect the patterns of materiality in the larger world. I am in part paying homage to the persistence of art, but also questioning its relevance at a moment when the world feels like it’s at some kind of tipping point economically and environmentally.
