Collage: Photo, Paper, Digital, Fiber on Soft (Yarn, Cotton, Fabric).
Embroidered digital photo collage on 400g handmade paper.
My poolside series captures the dream-like state of one’s memory of summer and childhood. Blurred photographs are deliberately printed on handmade and glossy papers, torn, and then stitched together. The focused photograph is print on thin bamboo paper, which is burned, layered slightly out of sync, and quilted on top of the blurred image.
Just like with memories and dreams, parts of the focused image are missing and parts of the blurry image are replaced with embroidery to cause knowing confusion. The layers and stitching are used to intentionally render the water and pool into a mysterious dreamscape.
