Just For The Record
This series was profiled in Kolaj Magazine issue #31 and Inspirational Magazine #46 and shown at Seager Gray Gallery.
At the time I created this series, I was making collages from discarded books. These collages use advertisements from our past and puts them in conversation with themes from our present moment, i.e.: racism, xenophobia,mysogny, and a disregard for the planet. I believe that setting these ads in their historical context by juxtaposing them with pieces from books from the same time period allows the past and present to coexist. These ads were part of a conversation that influenced the values of America.
