The Aftertaste of Moonlight

The Aftertaste of Moonlight

 

Collage undresses the darkness with a mirror’s secret undertow.  It’s a dance done on burning kites while dreaming at the speed of light.  Expectant as nakedness, collage is a door that surfaces in the shipwreck of your sleep.  It’s a caress with the irresistible softness of a slipknot in a velvet blindfold.

At its best, like poetry, collage is a moan just beyond delirium.I make collages out of all kinds of materials.  Most are made out of paper engravings.  Many collages are digitally generated or enhanced.
