The Collages 2015

"Our brains are built to wrest familiar meaning from the confusions of the world."

Looking through a stack of unfinished, unrealized drawings I had done over the last year, I knew I wanted to keep certain images. Perhaps only a particularly beautiful line, or wash of color would need "saving," some scrap of an idea or image that reminded me of some detail of my life. I began to tear the drawings into whatever sizes would best keep detail, and started adding other fragments to strengthen and clarify what had originally caught my eye.

These eleven collages are the result »
