Collage, Drawing & Flatwork
Collages that explores the private possession of ancient artifacts and today’s very real obsession with luxury. Collage sabotages hierarchacal boundaries of time and space, high and low, rich and poor, bringing all elements down to one flat plane. Collage visually amalgamates the possibility of origin with contemporary totemic power and questions the role of these objects today. An ancient cartouche becomes a universally recognized perfume bottle. A 'shawabti' or Egyptian funerary figurine is the oracle that immortalizes today's visions of beauty.
Do objects of desire withstand the test of time?
