"Popular culture isn't a freeze-frame; it is images zapping by in rapid-fire succession, which is why collage is such an effective way of representing contemporary life. The blur between images creates a kind of motion in the mind."
Warburton 6, 102 hand-pasted snapshots, 20 1/2 x 32 in.
Inspired in part by the Hockney Retrospective at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, NYC, I created this series of works--the Warburton Series-- which focused on the already significant role photography and time play in my work. I took a walk down Warburton Ave. in Hastings and shot almost one thousand photos. I often collage photos as maquettes to paint from, but in this case, I created digital collages as final images.
