About the exhibit
This collection of smaller works represents a year’s worth of mining and cutting up vintage Vogue magazines and modern style magazines.  

My process is one of discovery—following visceral responses to form, color and texture until the composition reveals itself. 

Much of mainstream collage relies on surrealist juxtapositions and narratives; here, I've largely abandoned narrative for the sake of a simpler, more concentrated aesthetic experience.
