Piles of discarded paintings, decorative paper, and photographs from nature books sit on a table in my studio. I cut out shapes from these materials, rearrange them at random to create new images, and photograph the results. I repeat this process several times, occasionally cutting up the photographed assemblages to rearrange them further. These spontaneous collages are the inspirations for the mysterious, colorful figures in my paintings.
