Jordan Sullivan shares his thinking behind his Landscape Collages series, which he began in 2012. Using found materials from used bookstores, his work repurposes images in dynamic compositions that convey a sense of place.
“My landscape collages reimagine and reshape the natural world into forms that reference something coming into being.”
“They are fragments of an undefined world, suggestions of the spirit of a place.”
“The images are cut up and reassembled on the pages of old, discarded, or forgotten books. ”
“Within these works creation and destruction, trash and beauty, coexist in harmonious and sometimes unexpected ways.”
