2019. Mixed media collage, installation

This is the largest collage I have created to date, and it stretches from wall to wall of a residency studio. Materials include: Playboy magazines, cheap western novels, LIFE magazine, apple produce boxes, beer boxes, charcoal, acrylic paint, and a ton of wood glue to hold it all together. Each material is sourced from the year 1954, the year of my foster mother's birth, and 1993, the year of my birth.
