Artwork Statements

Excavating into the image rich layers of movie posters found on the streets of urban Korea and India. Using a knife to carefully cut into and strip away the pre-existing layers. Nothing is added, only removed, the artwork is created by a subtractive process. Excavating into the layers of found posters involves mystery and chance, as it is uncertain what will be discovered.

As with archaeology, the process of excavation is an exploration for hidden treasures: revealing the various strata representing time and the history of the locations they were found, revealing the many images found in the under layers, revealing my feelings and impressions of that time and place, and revealing images from deep within my body and psyche.
