The collages have no underlying concept.
I begin the process by choosing bits of imagery based solely on their colour, form, tone, an expression – anything visually interesting to me in that moment. It’s purely an exploration, experimenting with various open narrative possibilities. It’s only towards the end, or even after, the process that I begin to rationalize what the combined images might suggest. It’s often a surprise what the unconscious has produced!
I would hope the viewer approach the work in the same manner – trusting in their sensory re-action as much as the rational, feeling free to interpret as they wish. As the artist, It’s an interesting experiment in how interpretations can vary so much!
