Lvs. [FALL COLLECTION]
Photographic-collage art exhibition
Sept. 1 -- 29, 2001
ARTIST STATEMENT: These pictures represent a slight sampling of work from an ongoing personal investigation into the dichotomy between commercial imagery, as depicted and reproduced in popular culture, and the "natural" environment. Through the redundant utilization of the "Lf.," a graphic logoform symbolizing nature, I cut into the sea of commercial hyperbole incessantly crashing in on society which I contend is largely responsible for eroding the shoreline of collective imagination. Some of these images have been appropriated. All have been collaged, assembled, rephotographed, cropped and enlarged as a means to at once derail, and revel, in the seductive nature of commercial imagery. Come hither.
