    Artist Statement

    There exists a well of desire for the past within many that is impossible to fulfill. The fantasy of frontier and pioneer days persists without question and without scrutiny. Accents are rehearsed, while period clothing is purchased alongside working and active firearms to complete the costume. Some wardrobes are based on photographs of the figures whom the re-enactors wish they could’ve been. Others are based on filmic representations of these characters, because their representation is much more vibrant and excellent. Whatever the motivation of each individual, I’m interested in the ideas of myth and entertainment, as well as how many novels and films have had the cultural force to rewrite history. The masculine identity seems to be the aspect of the myth that has been one of the most repeated and desired.
