“Take an object. Do something to it. Do something else to it"-Jasper Johns
I'm hugely influenced by dada and neo-dada.
In this photography project, I explore a peculiar combination of photography, painting & collage.
I create three-dimensional collages with found objects, food, and cheaply printed old paintings.
I turn pre-existing works of art into Duchampian ready-mades and take photographs of them.
I use strong shadows, layering, crumpling, and folding effects to give a three-dimensional sense in the final work.
I reduce the details and forms of a painting by covering objects, food.
Copies of old masters paintings initially evoke viewers' memory.
By using unexpected juxtapositions of objects, I try to create ambiguity and pull viewers'
attention deeper to my photographs.
In many ways, I examine a new type of still life.
