"Coalescing is a series of hand-cut and woven collages made in response to the incessant onslaught of mass media and pressures of mainstream beauty standards found within. Women’s fashion magazines in particular stand at a crossroads of cult, consumerism, and the unattainable image. By re-appropriating and deconstructing those glossy pages something truer, hand-made, and authentic can be expressed. The resulting juxtapositions seek to remind one of the visual and psychological manipulations abound in advertising while also creating a new dialogue in response. Coalescing manipulates the manipulated as both a rebuttal to the aesthetic pressures of advertising and as a reclamation of the human image to speak a deeper truth by reflecting a more personable and representative spirit of self."
