My collages are folktales fragments of the lives of people commonplace objects tattered, torn, discarded, violated and forgotten strong outbursts of emotion the pathos of used up things the poetry of time distilled from ordinary materials My work flows and changes random thoughts become concrete(paper) fragments become small universes restrained by their boundaries only to be exceeded every line, color, form has a definite expression the effect of light on the edges and planes creates an illusion of depth no amount of skillful invention can replace the essential elements imbued by time and circumstance nothing is left to chance I create an environment in which everyone can make their own historical discoveries
