A Retelling


I approach my mixed media collages as I would paintings. Found paper from discarded books and various printed materials mounted to plywood panels form the substrate upon which layers of oil glazes, graphite and image transfers are applied.


It is a slow, gradual process with each layer obscuring and altering the one beneath as I consider the color relationships and composition, arriving at a piece that I refer to as a collage painting.


The printed materials include textbooks, literature, maps, illustrations, scientific and technical instructions drawn together to create a new narrative. The found materials are intertwined with my own painted images drawn from personal histories, dreams and experiences.
