Sources found here and there in someone else’s catalogue. / Sources modified. / And made anew. Joseph Cornell: New Yorker, surrealist, avid collector of nostalgic oddities, and maker of strange, illuminous and spacious worlds that actually take up as much room as a cupboard or jewellery box. His approach to collage serves as an inspirational guidepost for my work these last couple of years. I am not exactly sure how this is so, but my experience suggests to me that it might have something to do with a special intuitive pull to the materials that are brought into play. Perhaps along the lines of always remembering to leave space for dreaming one’s way through the task at hand.
