Gallery > Otherworldly Collage

I arrange hand-cut images from vintage books and magazines to create surreal dreamscapes. The characters and elements within fill these collages with a visual language of curiosity. They are sometimes metaphors for my inner thoughts and memories.

Spatial harmony is significant. I balance colors to complement each other and I strive to create interplay between light and shadow, emphasizing the effects of natural light and dark sources. The placement of disproportionate items adds a touch of disharmony, but are dreams always rational?

Creepy shrouded figure lobbies for the government while a crow tries hard to save the planet from capitalist disaster in Outer Space. Lots of flowers, planets, jewels and such floating around.
