This artwork is a combination of illustration, collage and a painting. The bars are stuck on very firmly white paper. Each bar is a collage composed of different layers. There will be lots of little details become visible when the work is seen in reality. I'm inspired by weathered walls with posters, peeling paint and all kinds of things in dilapidation.This particular artwork is part of the Collages series. These collages are built up with all kinds of pictures, photos and images that I have collected over the years and supplemented with photographs from my own life. Some of the works are created by only arranging photographs in a certain way. Other collages are created with transferred images that are pulled loose or torn. Old and torn, outworn and weathered. Layer upon layer. On some of the collages I painted acrylic patterns or animals and figures. Most of the works are also worked over with ink, pencil, watercolor or ballpoint pen

I assemble original photography, assorted papers, acrylics, oil, charcoal, ink, and pencil in my works. The variety of resources I am able to use has proved indispensable to me. The biggest challenge the collage medium posed was its unforgiving lack of transparency. Finding a way to replicate the effects of transparency afforded by paint, especially watercolors, was a large victory for me. The preparing labor shows through in my collages; layer upon layer of material remains visible in the finished pieces. I believe my body of work is characterized by my skill for reinvention. Having always loved the appearance of weathered walls plastered with peeling paint and old posters, I revive this aesthetic with hopefully a keen and professional eye. The creative objective of my work is to “make something beautiful out of dilapidation.” My tableaus explore the dissonance between old and new materials, intertwined in the most beautiful way possible to create dreamlike and melancholy images.
