Large Scale Collage
Hand cut paper, laser prints
I start by building a visual archive of photos I have taken of my travels, of my pets and of plants from botanical gardens and my house. Certain photos are credit to Andrew Liang (thank you). I print them, cut them out by hand and then arrange them into new landscapes. I thoroughly enjoy the process of collaging images together. It generates connections and meaning between different elements in my life, revealing what feels like memory.
These two examples were made in 2015 and 2017 and are 84in x 84in. They are built in custom frames that press the collage between two pieces of glass and hang two inches off the wall to cast shadows behind them.
