ARTIST STATEMENT

My appropriated photographic work is a series of digital collages that are made from image fragments and partials reformed into landscapes. I collect screen shots from social media sites that I alter with phone apps and digital collage, then hand draw or paint on top of the print. My process removes the image from the post on social media and evokes a larger conversation about the idea of place: where am I/where are we?

The final result is a dream-like world open to an investigation on distraction: each image, made up of smaller segments from multiple images, can be read as a simplified image that meshes recognizable and uncertain terrains.
