The Spy

The Spy was originally a character from a painting I made called 111. She is one of an ensemble representing my imaginary childhood friends. For my first solo exhibition I wanted to bring the beings in my paintings to life and photography became the portal I was looking for.

The individuals who portray my beings in the photographs are chosen because they already possess qualities inherent in the concept and are willing to surrender themselves to the creative unfolding.
