Collage: Wallpaper, Plaster, Paint on Wood.
My work is referencing walls - their construction and meaning. I am interested in how wall structures and surfaces serve to express ideas and emotions remaining as records of a specific time. I use building materials to make wall-like pieces that I break afterwards. So my work focuses on the process of building up and then tearing away through expressive gestures.
After photographing torn posters of the city I started making wallpaper decollages in the studio. Layers of wallpaper glued with wheatpaste and then ripped. Seeking to perform the gesture of tearing found on the street walls, an emotive ripping off layers of paper firmly sticked together, breaking the accumulated patterns imprinted on the wallpapers.
Sometimes I tear out the surface, other times I dig it out, unearthing the hidden patterns and meanings of our walls.
