useless steps


Pretty but pointless stairs that start nowhere and lead to nothing.

ominous hallway


The room at the end of the hallway is where the skull lived.

leafy path


BUSHES. And a paper bag.

fixer splash


A blank piece of photo paper, coated with developer and fixer in varying degrees with various implements. After the paper dried I cut little windows in it and mounted it on cardboard stock with fragments of other prints underneath. It seemed like a good idea at the time.

Epic bowlcut.

Combining the ingredients from these with this.

I want one of these lightbulbs for every lamp I own.

Cyanotype printed on weird little Chinese paper found at Super 88.

deer bucket


I took this picture at a friend's house right before we went to see Low, and now whenever I listen to The Great Destroyer, this is what I see in my head. But it works.

motorcycle helmet


Me as a little kid, getting ready to take my dad's bike for a ride.

The previous statement was in jest. At the time the original picture was taken I was far too young to pilot a motorcycle.

mother & child pt. two


Going with yesterday's theme, my mom originally gave this to my cousin as a birthday present last year, minus the accessories. He was horrified, and when Christmas rolled around he regifted it to her. For his next birthday, she re-regifted it back to him, all trashed up, complete with cardboard box grotto. He loves it now.

mother & child


I have a version of this print somewhere that has the shadow of a hand reaching across from the left side. It gives the picture an entirely different meaning and feeling. I'll post it if I find it.

alternate invite


Alternate version of this piece. For this one I laid strips of cardboard over the paper for a few seconds as I exposed the image, which is where the lines come from. The face has a different scratch mask over it. And I solarized the area around the face, which is why everything is gray instead of white. Although it should be black, not gray, so I'm not sure what happened there.

yellow film girl


What happens when a Sony SnapLab printer runs out of ink ribbon while it's printing.

blonde kid


Me and my flannel and my poofy mullet. Things haven't changed a whole lot.

zipperface


Self-portrait by scanner, then printed out on a piece of photo paper. And now I have scanned the print back into the computer, and I present it to you here as a full-circle kind of thing.

cinnamon lady


Picture of a picture, soaked in cinnamon mouthwash for a week.

Mansion Show 2: success


Thanks to everyone who came out and supported local artists at the second annual Mansion Show last night. It was tons of fun. If you couldn't make it last night, the gallery is open every Saturday in June from 11am to 3pm.

I think this picture is a metaphor for the art world, but I'm not going to think too hard about how.

in the shed


Not sure where that orange glow is coming from.

Mansion Show 2: final warning


This is happening tonight. Hope to see you there.

Opening reception is 7-9pm, Friday June 5
@ The Beebe Estate, 235 West Foster St., Melrose, MA.

Another take on the same picture from yesterday.

Jessamy pt. one


I didn't take this picture, but I did make it all messed up on the computer.

spinart pt. two


Another spinart print. I scanned it into the computer a long time ago, before I knew what "pixels per inch" meant, as you can see by the chunky blockiness of it.
