I view collage as a form of magick. To quote Comte de Lautréamont, “Chance meeting on a dissecting table of a sewing machine and an umbrella”. Many of the my collages use juxtaposition to create effect, image and text, sign and signifier. Objects are brought together with the process of making of these strange marriages left visible. My collages are not seamless , rather they create their alchemy from the raw materials of the world.
