Most of my collages originate with a story. Some of the older works play with stories from secular and sacred literature like Ophelia, Hathor, Inanna, or Mary Magdalene. Most of them are brides caught in a surrealistic snapshot, all of them at a threshold moment of change. The more recent works originate in my own writing. My series called "Little Lu" uses my fictional character Lucie Darcy’s parameters – primarily monochrome materials, manual cut and paste, incorporating “mistakes,” and pre-1985 materials. The four photocollages shown also tell a story, although it's more abstract. Each is from a single roll of film shot in a single hour in one location.
All works shown are analog cut-and-paste collages. Dimensions include the frame.
