Building upon the foundation of forgotten ephemera, the meticulously crafted collage art of Human Wreckage transforms the simple into the sublime. By assembling images culled from varied historical frames, the works evoke an ethereal timelessness.

The unconventional juxtaposition of diverse subject matter simultaneously elevates the mundane and humbles the divine. It is at once violently innocent and joyously satirical.

Through the constant repetition of pattern, old images blend into new forms. Linear time crumbles as past, present and future exist as one singular moment.

The artist's unwavering adherence to the handcut analog format is paramount.
