This website demonstrates the 2 mediums I work in. My paintings convey my strong belief that paintings need to speak and be representative.
I take my inspiration from a DIY cut & paste ethic, Photomontage (John Heartfield), Propaganda posters from the wars and elements of Social realism and Pop art. I will use an image that interests me for a variety of reasons to distort its context, giving it a new meaning.
For my collages, I select dated images to remove it from modern reality. The "chance" elements involved in the process further remove reality giving these pieces a completely different context, though I do not seek a meaning from these.
