surreal photomontage art

 

         
History  

I began working in this medium in 1999 as a high school senior in Greenville, SC.

To create these works, I first compile a collection of pictures and images found in contemporary print media. Next, I study the collection of pictures and think of various combinations that yield a new image that is distinct and entirely independent of the original elements.

Using scissors, Exacto knives, and a glue stick, I physically combine the various pieces of the collage and create the original - . Once the original is completed, I enlarge them in color at the local Kinko's. This process enlarges an image to as much as 11" by 17", making them perfect for wall decorations.

I have always produced this art independently for personal reasons. I still continue to pursue this hobby now, and anyone interested may email me (dtownes@email.unc.edu) to request a print of any piece.
