Artist's Description

paper collage

28″ × 22″

Winter 2004

My goal for this piece was to reveal the unfolding of God’s plans in his creation of life, but I soon realized that my paper board wasn’t big enough for that!

Instead, all I managed was a spooky scene shrouded in the mysterious; a contemplation of the twisting double-helix of a gnarled tree.

To create the illusion of gills under the mushroom caps i scraped lines into the ink with my razor revealing the white core of the paper.


The materials used in this work were derived from various magazines, perhaps including, but not exclusive to; National Geographic, National Geographic Travel, Architectural Digest, Outside, Smithsonian, In Style, Playboy, Transworld, Reader’s Digest, Sailing, Sports Illustrated, Field & Stream, Marvel Comics, DC Comics, and Skateboarder.

I have altered, rearranged, and used the fragments of photographs and advertisements published in these magazines in a way inconsistent with their original context so that my derivative works do not infringe on any copyright. However, on the off chance that anyone recognizes any photograph fragments I have used in my work let me know so i can credit it properly. Thanks.
