Using collage and other material processes, I transform the iconic image into a more complex reading. By appropriating found images within a specific urban area, my work exposes particular histories of class discrepancy. Filtered through my personal experiences, narratives are formed using signifiers like flags, pidgin languages, and professional sports. Pictorially, I use the grid to reference the layout of the dense urban environment. This formal structure is capable of hosting a range of disparate images and mediums. My exhibition Private Signals refers to the development of personal relationships that are formed through the manipulation of public images.
