WHERE EYES TAKE US
photographic montage
Photomontage is the process and the result of making a composite photograph by cutting and joining two or more photographs into an illusion of a real or unreal subject. In this series, the  subject is fragmented by the application of paint and mixed media materials, becoming  something quite different. The flat glossy surface of the photograph has been disturbed, transformed, abstracted, bearing the unique marks of the artistís hand.

ARTIST'S NOTES ON 
BODY PARTS TWISTER
It is inevitable that upon our initial contact with other human beings, we label each other by how we physically look to one another. Upon meeting, we check out his/her hair, eyes, nose, mouth, teeth, skin, muscles, chest, legs, bottom and more. Nothing goes unnoticed except maybe onesí intelligence! Itís how we size each other up. Itís how we do business, its how we make friends and enemies. Itís how we make love which makes more gamers for the game.

At these daily contacts, we literally consciously and subconsciously evaluate body parts to get an answer and a feeling to carry on developing relationships with each other.  It is indeed subconscious stereotyping that is inherent in us as animals.

In this context, the game of ĎBody Parts Twisterí illuminates the light-hearted point that our reality of physical assumptions is futile when it comes down to predicting a winner of the game.  How did you score? How were you scored by others? Will you score tonight?!

In practice, the work expresses that the body is beautiful, telling and stirring in a mysteriously attractive cerebral way. It is how we play the game that matters.  Either playing by the rules or cheating, we must all accept the dichotomy of the outcome that determines our destinies with other people.
