2019 - 2020 - Your New Favorite
To create these works on paper, I am using a flatbed scanner to change the shape of luxury items. Dragging the original cut-out across the surface slowly and methodically, I manipulate and disrupt the source image in an analog way. The result of this literal dance is soothing and surrealistic, visually deconstructing the value of perception of the photograph as a fantasy and document. Sometimes the resulting scans are again cut, printed, re-scanned and recontextualized and reused in different collages. I am exploring the vulnerability an illusion - using motion, the contrast of resolution and perspective to physically change the photograph and show the gaps in photographic mirages.
