Decollages
contact
I call these miniature
landscapes Haigas, after
the Japanese art form
combining words with images.
They are decollages, created
from weathered posters
rescued from a plywood
barrier around a construction
site. The papers were faded,
blistered, and gritty with
traffic grime. In the studio,
I found that the reverse,
unprinted sides were more
interesting than the printed
sides, and I began to see
hidden landscapes. I've done
very little alteration to the
papers, except to add some
tiny words dealing with
perception, perspective,
and topography, cut from
a pocket dictionary.
 
The series is sold out, but
I still like to show the images.
