Alike is a photographic body of work, generating conversations regarding our use and understanding of nature. This series focuses on re-contextualizing the linguistic signifiers we give to objects, juxtaposing items with similar physical attributes or namesakes, creating a dialogue between etymology and taxonomy. My work is a product of a background in design, conservation education, travel, and growing up on a Central Oklahoma ranch. I'm proud to have shown in museums and galleries across the United States, including Blue Star Contemporary Art Museum, Non-Fiction Gallery, and the University of Wisconsin.
⋙ Field Notes
On the same trip that I created Butterflies and Moths at the Museum of the North in Fairbanks, we met up with the Curator of Birds, Kevin Winker, and the Collections manager, Jack Withrow. Down in the Museum's basement, they house their Bird Collections; we (Tom and I) opened drawer after drawer of beautifully preserved birds. The museum's collected specimens represent a genuinely magnificent statement of birds' in our great northern frontier.
All prints are printed on 100% cotton Hahnemuhle Pearl Photo Rag inkjet paper and meet the highest requirements for museum-quality age-resistant digital photographic printing. Each print will last 60+ years before showing signs of fading.
Each numbered limited edition print comes with a certificate of authenticity. If the framed option is select, the work is mounted and framed using museum-quality standards in a 3” deep shadowbox style frame and comes ready to hang.
