Collages

The chair is a utilitarian object with practical, aesthetic and symbolic roles. It possesses the qualities of balance and strength central to the human body in all its variety. In its poetry, the chair carries powerful human meaning and is part of the shared semiotics of life. The symbolic weight of this object makes it a great subject matter to explore visually and emotionally. The dance of pattern, shape and form of chairs inspire me to play with the rhythms and harmonies in patterned and colored paper. I use the shape and shadows of furniture in space to allude and simultaneously distort the picture plane. The serendipity of the collage process feeds my curiosity and exploration of this subject.
