I'm fascinated by perceptual shifts. How we can shift our focus or thinking or attitude and begin to see something new or different - sometimes things that are right under our noses, except we just can't "see" them.
I strive to create perceptual shifts in my collage work so the viewer has both the pleasure and challenge of perceiving different subjects, coexisting on different planes. I do it because I thinks it adds depth and dimension to a 2-dimensional work, both literally and metaphorically.
There's something absolutely magical about those two images existing in the exact same drawing, but never revealing themselves simultaneously.
