Décollage Series

Artist’s Statement

The Pre-Raphaelites have always been a source of inspiration and admiration to me.  I have the utmost respect for those artists who believed strongly in a mission to bring beauty and spiritualism to a 19th Century Industrial Age England. My work comes from a place of marrying wit with classical as well as mystical elements to create a new narrative, usually satirical in nature. This series could best be described as Post-Apocalyptic Pre-Raphaelite.

My inspiration also comes from the French artist Antoine Watteau, a 17th Century painter who began his career as as set painter in Paris.His theatrical beginnings “set the stage” for his otherworldly future work. This resonates strongly with me, for I strive for a “play within a play” when aiming to create and stage a new work.

All that being said, creating this Décollage series for me has been a most gratifying experience. I feel it is a journey of self discovery, one full of surprises, never knowing where each narrative will lead me… with a nod to the past… and in some cases a wink and a bit of whimsy.
