I am Cain

Collage is a medium I very seldom work in, but the effect is so unique. I really enjoy drawing on top of existing images, it harks back to Braque’s work over newspaper and also to Dada photo montage and collage, it’s an exercise in letting go of classical ideas of making. The images are pre-made, yet putting them in a new context, in a new framing, is as powerful as creating art from scratch.

The idea of Cain is a recurring theme in my work, the name is important to me, yet on different days it will mean very different things.
