Artist's Insight 

Décollage is the opposite of collage - from the French word décoller meaning to take off or to unstick. This technique is based upon the appearance of advertisements ripped from billboards, leaving fragments of papers and the layering of previous posters. I see it as a metaphor for time.

"This piece reminded me of revisiting a place where you grew up that has since fallen into disrepair or has changed over time, not measuring up to your memories - the new reality."
