“Born in 1961 in Brooklyn, NY, I am best known for my hand-cut-and-assembled gelatin silver photo collages, and for the B&W photographs from which they are made.

I am a self-taught collage artist, and created my first work at 8 years old, a bookcase covered with meticulously cut and pasted magazine pictures.

In 1999, I graduated from SUNY Empire State College with a B.A. in Documentary Visual Studies and Society – a self-styled major which combines my love of photography and commentary.

In the early 2000’s I began cutting up my gelatin silver photographs for use in collage, in order to carry on with my work during a period when I had no access to a darkroom. This led to my ongoing Architextures series of hand-cut-and-assembled photo collages.

I also create mixed-media surrealist collages, often using one of my store window mannequin photos as the basis for an exploration of an emotional state.

I have exhibited my gelatin silver photographs and collages in New York, and nationwide, for over fifteen years. My images have been featured in New York Gallery Guide, About.com, and The Sun Magazine.

I have been interviewed for WBAI Radio in New York, served as Editorial Consultant for a technical photo manual written by David Fokos, and received a Puffin Foundation Grant for a documentary photography project.

My photographs and collages are in private collections in the US and abroad.

I currently live and work in New York and Silver Spring, MD.” AM

Trappings of Entitlement The photo background for this series depicts St. Paul’s House/Rev. J.J.D. Hall Memorial, a mission for homeless  people on West 51st Street in New York. The recipients were being made to listen to a sermon in order to be eligible for a food handout. What a perfect metaphor for this concept.

Statement

“I enjoy examining & considering the world visually; I can understand and
articulate things via my art that I couldn’t grasp any other way.
My work focuses mainly on drawing out the beauty of that which is broken,
overlooked, or discarded – it is important to me to look closely at life, to notice
the tiny details. I believe that things and places have their own lives and intimate
feelings and I want to tell those stories, to give voice to moments
otherwise forgotten. My studio practice encompasses a variety of
media and usually always involves layers and depth, as those elements
directly reflect my process.” ML

I’m riffing on currency engravings for one of my Canada Suite paintings. The strongest currency in the world you might ask? Canadian Tire currency of course. It never loses its value and you can by an amazing amount of stuff with it.

I think it’s Thursday but it’s really Wednesday in the studio.

I’ve been working on a commission that I recieved from the Prince Edward Idland Council of the arts for the 150th anniversary of the Charlottetown Conference. The paintings are on board, and the work is coming along steadily. Some of the pieces I’ve completed will be dropped when it comes time to select the final paintings. It’s been awhile since I’ve worked on board and I have to admit I prefer working with paper.
