“My collage work is a result of an effort to understand the world of my grandfather. The tactile process of analog collage allows me to intimately explore another place and time. I deconstruct imagery from the past, much as a mechanic disassembles an engine, to understand how it functions. By reassembling these pieces in new ways, I make the world of my grandfather my own, a new visual world, one that exists between his past and my present.”
