As a designer, I've
long been obsessed
with beauty of print
media. Before my
I created a collection of politically and socially inspired art from 2004-2009.
It was back in 2004 when I began experimenting with enlarging words (from newspapers and printed type from my inkjet) via the xerography process and then hand tearing and cutting those words collaging my image.
Symbolically, the uneven tones and broken lines of the type enlarged via xerography process is meant to exploit the importance of print media. This is one of the main reasons why I began this journey, exploring this collage process.
Most of the images, even though at first glance they may represent one side of an issue, are illustrated to have the viewer draw their own conclusion . Once the viewer is engaged in the piece, he/she forms a relationship with the subject – this is intentional and meant to heighten the viewer experience with the artwork.
All of my artwork is mixed media with acrylic, high-gloss UV varnished on 2" deep canvas. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org for purchasing information/availability.
