Placement. Placing. The photo collages place sculptures and statues in the midst of weathered, battered outdoor spaces. The structures are in states of slow or rapid disintegration, and although only seen in two dimensions contain a great amount of colour and texture.
The images reflect places that are out in the city. Learning that some of these statues can be easily seen in parks, public places and cemeteries opens a desire to find them, or at least be ready to happen upon one and take a long look.
The collaged images are placed on wall board that appears to have been cut to size, wrapped and treated. Lines of graphite or pencil have been applied to both board and image -- markings that extend from the flat photo paper to the textured white surface. The images are brought beyond their edges by these lines.
And I am physically placed in relation to the pieces. The traffic movement outside brings sound and occasionally moving panes of reflected light across the space.
