falls... and pools,

2004 - ongoing

paper with mixed media collage

15 x 11 inches

The political landscape continually challenges the ideas of a republic; at times threatening its erasure. From Abu Ghraib to Trump Tower we can see the descent from a secure republic to a morass of ideological debris, collected in dark tanks. This cycle of images, begun during the election of 2004, will continue — at least — through the current regime.

These collaged images assemble text and visual fragments found in the news, online resources, model-making parts and figures, discarded/found materials, and conventional art materials.

 

Each page is the size of an accountant’s ledger and perforated with two holes to suggest its eventual incorporation into such an accounting.
