Everywhere I am provided with source material. I’m constantly looking, searching, collecting, appropriating, and repurposing. I photograph, download, scan, and screen capture. Images are placed, erased, degraded, and layered. Thanks to my current residency at the Lower East Side Printshop I’ve been able to add layers of silkscreen and monoprinting over digitally printed collages. Much of my work moves back and forth between analog and digital processes, expanding with each iteration the complexity of the image.
Reusing images from earlier projects establishes threads of recognition and connectivity through my work. Fragments are compacted into a collaged whole. Seemingly disparate elements combine in an effort to create a visual syntax. Each image/object is a cluster of information: aggregated data.
