In the series Presence, my desire is to provide an open viewing experience, allowing room for a more personal relation to be made. The photographic images present unrecognizable subject matter, moving instead toward a capture of its essence versus its actual depiction. By applying a more contemplative approach to both the medium of photography and the natural environment, I strive to make images that conjure unique stories untold by the realities they capture. To heighten this sensation, an added layer of encaustic has been applied to the surface of the images - both lending structural depth, as well as figurative links to memory, the passage of time and notions of fading existence.
