meanwhile, employs a photographic process that is more explicitly collagist.
Displayed in light boxes that emphasize their vibrant colors, his works
ostensibly offer views of places we all know: Rome, Hong Kong, New York, London.
Yet each landscape is unrecognizable, more closely resembling a patterned
arrangement of colored glass in a kaleidoscope than any worldly environment.
Each image—every location—is in fact constituted from thousands of photographic
fragments taken from numerous angles at varying times of day, and woven back
together. Disorienting and familiar at once, these works embody the artist’s
distinctly subjective vision of the world. His technical process of montage and
collage, deconstruction only to reconstruct, echoes the tricky nature of
seeing: suggesting a world that is given to us whole, perceived in parts, and
sewn back together.
