On the walls and streets of the city, layers of pictures, signage, and graffiti build up over time, creating a palimpsest that preserves traces of the past in an otherwise changing environment. That flux is captured in painting using erasure and collage, often aided by digital tools. In sculpture, dents and folds distort ordinary objects and expected forms, speaking to the malleability of our surroundings. Made in the first decades of this century, these works reflect the fragmentation of the physical and digital worlds we inhabit, admitting the impossibility of a cohesive image.
