Tephra

Tephra, a series of three collages, comes from an impulse to destroy images, to neutralize its structure, form and composition to keep only the surface. This destruction is systematic, programmed. The units are then aggregated into layers and deposits, striated casting. The images are all there, preserved, but indecipherable, such as a coded memory process. Tephra, which means in Greek ash, is a term used in geology to designate fragments of rock expelled during the eruption of a volcano.
