From the ArtistMy work is about combining images with wall-like surfaces, and with the effects of aging/weathering on both. I am interested in how time deteriorates both surfaces and memories.
In this particular print, On the Beach, the image of the chairs is from a beach where my family used to take me as a child. It is floating in front of a wall-like surface split into fragments with different kinds of information on them. I wanted the image of the chairs to look as if it was starting to fuse with the background.
