small works on paper
For the past several years, I have collected my smaller collage works between the covers of books that I unbound. Below is an overview of these collections. If you're interested in purchasing a collector's book or an individual, small-scale analog collage, please visit the purchase/contact page for more information.
AMERICANS: AN ANTI-POEM BOOK
Americans: An Anti-Poem Book is my ambient re-telling of Herman Melville's Moby-Dick. This collection contains 80 pages of analog collage work and hand-inscribed epigrams. I created Americans in late-2014.
shitfield and over-sized shitfield (not pictured) contain hundreds of pages of analog collages and hand-inscribed epigrams. I created the first pieces in this collection during summer 2014; I made the final pieces in this collection in April 2015.
