"It often begins with a scrap of discarded paper. A colorful snippet saved from the floor of my studio. Or found on the street among the detritus of urban decay. Sometimes it begins with a photograph of something I find compelling. Even an inconsequential scrap from a 50-year-old Peruvian newspaper can serve as the impetus for a collage.
When I place this remnant on another piece of paper, the “conservation” begins; a dialogue between my subconscious and conscious mind, and the elements at hand. I normally do not think about the outcome. I let the conversation unfold and take me to a conclusion: logical, illogical, or indifferent."
