Enchanted by the detritus and left behinds of our everyday lives, this body of work, Paper Cutz, looks deeper into the geometric and optically dazzling play of shapes, colors, and patterns in our paper cast asides.

Be it trimmings of prints, post cards and wrappers, used soda straws, takeout napkins, or whatever lands on the studio floor. Zooming in and selectively cropping, with inverted lighting, and color enhancement, all this pre-assumed waste becomes fodder for us to take a closer examination and seize the opportunity for a new fresh approach as to exactly just what is useless and what has value.

With roots in Cubism, DaDa and Op Art the end result in these images is that there is visual excitement and confusion, synesthesia and intrigue in isolating and recontextualizing that which would otherwise be discarded and forgotten.
