Why collage? Difficult question! I like to think automatism and accident plays a substantial role in the creation of my work, often experiencing a sense of conscious disconnect as I piece together imagery and shapes until it seems complete.. a bit of escapism and art therapy I guess.

 

My work is greatly influenced by Surrealism. Not so much the visual aesthetics (although I like it a lot), rather the thought processes and exercises used to ‘break into’ the creative subconscious mind. I source materials from my ever-growing collections of books, postcards and found photography, often getting drawn in to the antiquity and story behind the image which I use as inspiration for new investigative work usually exploring memory and history. I think of my practice in two main sections; investigating the elapsed lives within the history of the source and the creation of a new narrative within this via collage, photomontage and painting.

I hope you enjoy my recent works below!
