ARTIST STATEMENT
The act of creation is for me a process of discovery and experimentation. All of my collage works begin in the same way. I sit down surrounded by boxes full of magazines, old photographs, knick knacks, random discarded objects, etc., and then I start cutting and arranging things intuitively, thinking more about their aesthetic qualities than their potential symbolism. As each piece takes its place, meaning seems to arise on its own, rather than being imposed by me. This works very well into my general practice of not telling people too much before they've had an opportunity to engage with the work on their own, and apply their own meaning and narrative to the work. As those interpretations come back to me, they inform my own interpretations, giving my work a quality of being in constant evolution.
