Mixed Media

In these works, the ripped and torn edges of photographs overlap haphazardly with rough brushstrokes linking the fragments of collage, evoking the way images may be recalled to the consciousness or brought forth from memory: never perfect, never succinct, and always quick to be replaced with the next idea or thought. Identity is found in memory, but never quite as we expect.The textured and rough finish to the picture adds to the otherwise two dimensional plane of a photograph, eliciting the sense of a layered consciousness, memory and self-hood.
