Bio


My primary work is with found image and photography through collage and printmaking. My work focuses on what happens to an image when another image is added to it; the basis of collage. Most of my work is based in photography and representation of the human form. The work has revolved around two main themes - repetition and the cut line that separates one image placed on another image.

I always attempt to keep the human form a relevant subject but with a leaning towards the abstraction and reinterpretation of these basic human building blocks. Processing these figures through a matrix, grid or system of repetition creates objects that give the opportunity for chance occurrences but remain systematic. Despite this, I'm interested in the "hand" of the artist and I really enjoy the idea of "style".
