A Collection of Wonderful Things

So this is one of three planned new books I will have for TCAF this year. This one is a limited edition of seven, six of which will be for sale. All hand bound in leather, 19 individual two layer silkscreens some featuring degradaies (sp).
This new work is a repurposing, in a collage style, of the work from my comics practice into new arrangements bound together within a book. This process allows me to recontextualize the imagery and meanings of my original pages to create new messages out of pre-existing narratives. Each page is independent from the source material and becomes its own individual piece; meaning is contained within each image. Colour is introduced in the form of imagery and text. It is used to add to the composition, subvert or reinforce the meanings found within each piece.
