In this paper, the imagery of public exhibition spaces, museums, and public collections is discussed in relationship to my body of work. I engage ideas of stillness, the creation of alternate realities, and how preconceptions shape interpretation. My interest in stillness and the activation of captured moments is expressed through the relationship between Cabela’s and my photographic archive. By compositing and reconstructing these images, I shift the viewer’s perception of reality. I thus explore how these aesthetic considerations generate fictitious interpretations. Dependent upon the viewer, my drawings transform the reality of the photographic so that we are confronted by the nature of our preconceptions.
