Working with found photographs and ephemera, I piece together fragments to uncover the latent narratives hidden within these found images. Digitally, I combine multiple photos and create a compilation that yields a new image. I use the transformative power of collage and paint to add depth and convey emotional undercurrents. Using juxtapositions that are both surreal and rooted in cultural and historical references, my work re-examines the fixed narratives that have been attached to these found images. I create a three dimensional illusion of space for stories to unfold. By repurposing and rearranging fragments and infusing new life, I invite viewers to question, find humor, and respond in multiple ways. My goal, to quote Fran Leibowitz, is ultimately to “take them somewhere.”
