An introduction can be a wonderful thing. You can meet interesting people, and make new friends. You can be introduced to your new favorite foods, books, music, or artist. I’d like to introduce you to some of my favorite artists. Some of whom I’ve been familiar with for years, and others I’ve only recently been introduced to. The person I’d like to introduce is the artist Adrienne Moumin.
“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
