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. Decades later, in 2014 and 2015, with the focused energy of an Artist Residency, I was able to create a series of new collages based on historical portrait paintings. That project led to my exhibiting at the Carter Burden Gallery in New York City.
