Portfolio > Transformed Works

The common thread in this work is based on compiling various image sources to create a larger single image. The most recent works are from a series loosely titled "Monumental Busts" or "Stress Fractures". Some of these images contain the presidential heads from Mount Rushmore re-contextualized to express political and ecological themes. Others are simply built up from a wide range of sources and typically express an idea that I was interested in sharing at the time of creation.
