calling all saints*
In this series a portrait is used as the basis for photomontages that explore the questions: What is sacred? What are we at risk of losing due to environmental issues and global concerns? The work is informed by religious imagery, contemporary issues and popular culture.
* During an artist residency in The Netherlands, I had a chance encounter with the artist model Geke Hankel. I asked if I could take her portrait. The resulting photograph was then used as the foundation for a series of collages with imagery of contemporary life in the Netherlands.
