“am i dreaming is a selection of landscape and botanical collages created from my own personal archive of 35mm and medium format photographs. fill flash blown out images of plants, wide open painted landscapes, and narratives held together solely by tape make the viewer feel nostalgic for a simpler time. the fiction that is inherent in collage allows me to manufacture dreamlike, hyperreal, and distorted images that challenge the reality agreed upon by society’s majority, especially you.”
