Artist Statement:

Over the past year for each Collective group show, I have truly enjoyed incorporating our rural property into each of my works, Inside/Outside being no exception to that concept. For my 3 chosen images, I decided to incorporate the use of a feature new to Polaroid Cameras, which is the capability to do double exposures. To me, using this Polaroid method was a perfect opportunity to juxtapose the idea of being immersed in the elements of nature via water and the surrounding chaparral landscape vs scenes from our working ranch property.
