"...Sons of Man is a collection of collages using Magritte’s painting as its base, juxtaposing it with objects and images connected to the mundane, secular, religious, mythical, cinematic, literature and pop culture. The result? Many sons of man. Who are they? Each and every image will evoke a thought or a feeling, unique to the onlooker. The bizarre combinations in each collage make you question many aspects of life and the human condition. They will make you smile and chuckle, but also disconcert you in Dada fashion. You may never look at an apple the same way."
