(from Evidence Of Others Series)
One of the most comforting things, to me, is happily fading into deep thought or sleep while listening to other people’s “life sounds”. I’m an observer, and I’m comforted and encouraged by other people living their lives. This evidence of others is inspiration for this series of intuitively designed collages using unaltered scraps of materials like paper, fabric, string, tape, and wallpaper.
For these works, I have collected the discarded remnants of meaningful materials. I have not altered these discarded scraps. Rather, I have applied them to collage, as is, embracing the residual narrative intended by others. By handling the same materials that others have touched in a new capacity, my ideas become part of their story, and vice versa.
