Paper Collage
My collages and assemblages examine nostalgia, memory, and absence through a variety of materials both personal and collected. Using paper, fabric, printed material, and other ephemera, my work explores visual narrative, giving objects new life as they become part of a collective whole. My work draws reference from historical events, children’s art, music, and outsider culture, and often resembles a visual journal or record of an event, though when working, I am more concerned with subverting or embellishing memory for the purpose of storytelling.
