1/1

The collages in this current series offer a clear reading. They are easy to look at. Cut out images are sparsely placed on a white or black sheet of paper. Each component symbolizes a thought and keep it's integrity within the composition while contributing to a central idea.  Some of these collages spurt out spontaneously. Others took planning and were approached as a way to work out my inner tensions.

 

Made almost entirely with Artforum magazines, “the bible of contemporary art” * according to writer Sarah Thornton, these cut outs are for the most part pictures of works belonging to other artists which have been shown or are about to be exhibited in galleries and institutions all over the world. 

 

Through the use of these images, I am appropriating other people’s works and ideas, ‘fishing’ into the collective consciousness and I reinterpreting them into new context and perspective as a way to re-write “my own bible”.
