Woven Women, 2014

In 2014 I had the opportunity to be an Artist-In-Residence at the Leonard Covello Center for the Aging, located in East Harlem. I made photographs on the streets and of the people whom I met at the Center, on the way to my studio each day. The studio was a large empty bright space and I decided to work on a collage project using reproductions from art history, “Woven Women”.

Transitional Collages, 1984 - 1987

I started making collages using art historical images as subject back in the mid 1980s, when I moved back to New York City from Austin. I lived in a very small space without access to a darkroom for a while, so making collages and filling up cigar boxes fit into my room, schedule and the need to make art.

An Odd Collection, 1984

Box holding 50 collages made sequentially in 1984. The rule was one page a day, the number had to be in two places, and I couldn't start on the next one until the morning. A diary from a difficult year.
