Ikebana refers to the ancient Japanese art of arranging flowers, in which nature and humanity interact. The philosophy of Ikebana emphasizes the whole plant - its stems, leaves and blossoms – and draws attention to shapes, lines and forms.  In a similar way, I construct my collages by emphasizing gestures and body parts to create new forms. The fragility of the body is juxtaposed with architectural space and geological elements that appear strong but are always changing. Like flowers, they are never permanent.  The imagery - drawn from my own photographs and appropriated from our visual culture - are new landscapes of the displaced body that blur the line between embodied and digital space.
