While continuing to explore commonly used themes in my work. Because the majority of my art instinctual; I’ve returned to consciously assess repeated themes and visual elements.
Collaged/altered human forms & limbs: My work contains many examples of bodies with different heads/limbs. I use original images from high fashion magazines, postcards, stamps, and other ephemera, where the concepts of beauty begin to combine and collide with the absurd. The figures are usually initially aesthetically pleasing on their own. Yet, the final figures also have their own unique beauty in their flaws, and strange angles or proportions. The disconnected limbs, unexpected layering of the human body also leave the imagery open to the interpretation of the viewer, beyond the implication we all have beauty within our imperfections.
