Description

Redaction is selecting and adapting from multiple texts, or sources to create a new, complete, coherent document representing the ideas (religious, cultural, or otherwise) of a given group. Redaction creates the story for all, omitting the irrelevant, and focusing on the unifying events across multiple narratives. In these paintings, personal narratives are applied to consumer packaging as a canvas. The resulting image contains a jarring variety of information, much in the same way consuming commercial television can.
