Songbirds

I use collage sourced from discarded fashion magazines, such as Vogue, to comment on what is natural and artificial. I use the highly stylized fashion photographs, deconstruct them into their base elements of colour, shade, patterns, and reconstitute the elements into another image. In the collages, I cut out sections from the models clothes, hair and skin as my “palette of paint” building up the image in tonal values and leaving visible the rough-cut edges to add to the layered effect.
