I have a long career as an edition bookbinder. As a result my work lies in the confluence of book and graphic art. I use found images and text to illustrate conceptual themes in a historical context. Portrait (1993-2012) is comprised of 19 years of my personal check registers overlaid with six frames of Muybridge’s horse sequence. I think Muybridge’s horses and check registers both present “snapshots” that capture the passage of time and motion.
