2012, postage stamps and magazines, sizes vary

This work deals with multiples, collectables, and mass production in contrast or relation to things that are custom or handmade. I am interested in making pieces that have a level of accessibility, approachability and familiarity, but are further transformed through subtle
and ironic manipulations into something new. I alter an object’s meaning through context and function, thus forcing the viewer to question and reflect on culture
and habit. These collages are an irreverent mixture
of today’s advertising and gossip magazines with
formal portraits found on postage stamps.
