Using the process of collage, I combine images, photographs, digital renderings, and drawings into an image and then print it onto canvas and then paint over.

It’s a kind of a collage, a contemporary version of the type of work Rauschenberg was pioneering in the 1950s that used silkscreen as a collage technique. There was no way for him to digitally manipulate those images before they were printed.  I’m able to collage everything together into one coherent image before printing it.
