about this work
Simply yet precisely cut imagery from hardware store catalogs are carefully glued on glossy chromolux paper, creating rhythmic scenarios of wit and surrealism. Calling up various modest associations, these banal items transcend mundane reality by revealing their daring of objectivity.
