If a day goes by without my doing something related to the visual arts, painting, drawing, graphic design, photography or video and editing, it's as though I've neglected something essential to my existence, it's as though I had forgotten to wake up…

Pedestrian DéCollage Photoworks
COMING DECEMBER 2015 
DéCollage in art is the opposite of collage. Created by pedestrians cutting, tearing away or otherwise removing pieces of an printed image revealing to a greater or lesser degree the poster or posters underneath. These photoworks are a fusion of visual relationships that integrates influences from abstract painting, photography and graphic design.

​This book documents the first early interest in images of torn posters from "Post No Bills" construction sites to the development of customized new photoworks created by digital manipulation from the many DéCollage photos taken over the years.​

The new works in the book are pulsing with tension between opposites with the intention to deconstruct and reconstruct these images of popular culture into personal narratives of ambiguity with humor and a dark edge.
