Alchemical Collage Series
Art is a process of turning ordinary materials and transforming them into an object that metamorphose-sizes the ordinary and unremarkable physical into the realm of the metaphysical. Paper, magazines, and ink are alchemically morphed into a mirror that the viewer sees their own psyche reflected back.
