I make wall-mounted collages from found, colored cardboard & book covers. Referencing architecture, landscape and the interplay of urban & natural environments, these works are sculptural in form, coming off the wall in various layers suggestive of odd terrains, infrastructures and skylines.
I am interested in how cardboard, a simple, abundant and inherently impermanent material, can be structured into quiet surfaces that convey both formation and dilapidation simultaneously. Reflecting this duality is the intrinsic nature of the material itself. Cardboard is a highly utilized and indispensable component of our daily lives and yet it is seemingly valueless; a compulsively overlooked throw-away. Much like the natural and artificial landscape that we both inhabit and construct, these collages serve as a tenuous meeting point of architectural and abstract elements.
