Fascinating use of appropriated imagery and text where he takes a set of images and overlays them thereby creating a single new object that at first appears to be a charcoal drawing. He selects iconic series of photographic images such as the Bernd & Hilla Becher gasholders or the series of the Brown Sisters by Nicholas Nixon and generates a new art piece from them.
