In my work, I bring attention to the often over-looked everyday moments in daily experiences and observations. This preoccupation with the everyday creates a relationship to a past time or experience based on a longing to summon every encounter, and for these experiences to be continuously present.
An enchantment and affection for a time before I was born lends itself to become a surrogate for a world in which I was not a part of. Acts of recollection are ways to sift through and show what already exists in order to illuminate the present.
Collage can playfully articulate the evasive histories of it's component parts: a curiosity that lies with how these materials from another time or place can portray a daily action or experience.
