I cut up magazines and glue them together.
These collages approach photographs through the eye of necrophilia. The photographs are dead, removed from the source. The photograph manifests the corps of a moment extracted from time. Often it is a sexy corps and passed around for all to admire and aspire to.
Enter the flat inadequacy of erotic memory. The drive to find the permanent can't be satisfied, so we look at another picture and then another. Look again.
There's a memory of something, but the memory is a fragment; tainted with co-inhabitants (similar images in the psyche). A pile of images mingling. Re-contextualized, the source is disfigured: a monster. The fragments unify and the result is a chimera. Can we stop looking now? Ask Frankenstein, he couldn’t stop until his monster killed him.
