Michael Paige Glover | Southern Gothica in Brooklyn

"My current body of work focuses on psychological themes which depict innocence (either in children or adults) contrasted against a backdrop of chaos, destruction or obscure imagery which, in one way, relates to my past memories and present self awareness. I collect images from many sources: vintage photos/illustrations from children and family magazines and books, various film stills, old family photos and my own photographs as well. I spend weeks and sometimes months combining, arranging and deciphering hundreds of images which are an attempt to unravel a specific feeling I have about each piece. It's a process of discovery which leads me to create a type of personal symbolism using familiar imagery."
