This book is the culmination of a journey started 12 years ago after stumbling across a spin art toy while cleaning out a closet (see explosion blotter images). The forthcoming collages are from a series I started 6 years ago, originally created to go with music mixes I made and gave to friends. The point of the series was to experience the feeling of love, by meshing together the images and songs; to pause, soften and make sense, if only for a moment, of these modern, crazy and often confusing times we live in. I focused on fusing my photos, with scans of my paintings, old Russian film posters, designs from Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Aztec, & Mayan cultures and generous doses of our own pop culture. Many Photoshop manipulated hours later, what you get is, hopefully, something to make you smile, laugh and think. Ultimately the goal of this book is to take a glimpse through the eyes of someone attempting to untangle and understand an ever changing and complex world. Like a DJ, this is about finding new meaning in old classics mixed with undiscovered favorites. The rest of the story remains to be told, but now, it’s all about to start…….
