Collages on wood

I often work with plywood in my collages. While the subject matter and source material is the same as my collages on paper, the material itself is a reference to what is used – particularly in the Middle East – to section off construction sites. As a medium, wood is more resilient than paper – it is hardy, and it does not buckle under the accumulated weight of glue, paper and materials. There is a certain solidity otherwise missing from works on paper that I find in these wood works.
