These collages are made with images I've appropriated from fine art sources: auction catalogs, art magazine, art history books, museum posters, etc.
Like past projects of mine, they explore notions of value. IN this case, they are not about the significant historic or economic value of the art and artists. Rather they are aesthetic appreciation of colors, shapes, and textures that I use to create amorphously shaped pieces that are visually active and meant to confound one's expectations of the familiar source imagery
Each image fragment is adhered using acid-free glue, and then the finished collages are glued to rag paper backing. After that, they are mounted to archival museum board cut into the unique shapes of each piece. The final pieces are strong enough to be pinned to a wall for display or framed under Plexiglas, if desired.
