Alternative Facts: Photography by Any Means
Artist Statement, 2021

I begin with making photographs of ordinary objects and intimate spaces. These photographs are collected and become the raw material of my work. I select certain photographs then merge and layer them with digital drawings to create mixed media collages. Juxtaposition of color, form, content and perspectives create tension and new meanings. Creative aspects of painting and drawing are combined with the primal representational quality of photography to create my collages.
