"Let me tell you about awesome."

At various junctures in my artistic life I have rather joyfully immersed myself in the making of collages. In my most recent examples I have played with time. I have always admired artists like Kurt Schwitters and his amazing assemblages using found objects as a medium.

I think of the images in my collages as found objects because so many of my images were found on the streets of Madrid and other European Countries. The element of time as mentioned above plays an important role in my pieces; for example in many instances images span three centuries. It is not uncommon to find contemporary images juxtaposed with 19th and 20th century images.
