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 was developed as a non-objective painting, however when it was completed, I saw a ‘red bird’ flying against a field of green."
