I have spent my entire life deconstructing and reconstructing
images. From my youth clipping old magic tricks and novelty catalogs to recently
Italian Renaissance masterworks.
It began with my father who, was an
incredible artist. He worked for a newspaper doing graphic design, which was
called composition back in the day. When we would get out of school we would go
to the newspaper and hang out with our dad. He gave us clip art books to cut out
of and draw.
His ability to see, create and invent really shaped my
ability to see thing around us that are often unnoticed. What we thought was an
acceptable view versus what we are really looking at.
My images are
juxtaposed from what appears, a more traditional instant interpreted emotion -
narrative, with other images or text that on first glance may appear out of
place or detached.
Images, words combined create the piece which is
really emotions, subject matter � theme. One must destabilize the traditional
approach to seeing, (response) into a literal confining deconstruction.
