Works in (I’m)material are composed of magazine advertisements that I mash together by hand. The pulp and bits of paper are applied to a canvas and worked until a desired composition is reached. These works often appear dirty and gray as all of the colorful pigments become mixed together in the process, destroying the original image. I like them to tombstones or monuments to materiality. Some resemble concrete, but when presented in a portrait format speak towards the loss of photograph of someone.
