I think of collage as a visual poem. Poetry distills experience into language. Often disparate ideas and emotions coalesce. Collage unites images from varied sources to tell a new story. Each image—a ladder, a red cape, a violin—is like a single word or a phrase. Collage and poetry both work similarly to how memory does—we retain a ribbon of memory from that day and another from years before. There in that mix are the stories of our lives. Just as in poetry, not everything is spoken, room is left for the viewer’s imagination. For information on my collage and future shows, get in touch.
