Tableaux Vivants: 1993 to 2000

Artist Statement: From the book of Tableaux Vivants, Editon Stemmle. Zurich, 2002

My visual dialogue is based on the premise that life is the play – and display – of creation.  I agree with Shakespeare that “all the world’s a stage.,” an endless enigmatic production with moments of great joy, sorrow and surprise.  Surprise is a magical element that I try to create in a tableau process.

Tableaux are my vehicle.  The cast of characters consists of friends, acquaintances, lovers or strangers who enjoy the performance of being photographed.  Like the jazz-fusion artist I look for the odd juxtapositions, the unexpected mise en scene or multicultural influences that sometimes creates a new or ambiguous view of the world.
