"I’ve worked primarily in collage and mixed media for most of my career. I recently began translating these processes to digital media, using found images, my own photography, and digital paint brushes.
My goal is to combine the best aspects of my traditional paper-and-paint media and the added flexibility of digital media. My work is usually built up through multiple layers of thin washes and graphite linework. I find the built-in layer options of digital media enhances the control I can achieve with digital brushes while still allowing me to create in a way that is comfortable and similar to my traditional process.
I use collage elements to add visual and conceptual depth, often merging contemporary fashion or pop culture images with historical images and artworks to force a layered meaning onto my subject.
My subject matter often relates to both contemporary and historical social issues. I particularly like to focus on the interaction and separation between people at the center of society and on the edges of society." ~Kristine Thueson
