Peggy Weiss has worked in digital collage for eight years and her work continues to evolve with the medium. Advances in digital technology have enhanced her ability to capture startling detail and create mysterious imagery. Weiss is intrigued by ordinary photographs from the past and is inspired by the idea of exalting these amateur snapshots into truly unusual and often inexplicable moments in time. She selects, and then combines, numerous found images into new and completely unique visions of the artist.
Weiss typically begins with images found in the homes of her family and friends. She combines these snapshots with her own photography, producing arresting digital imagery that may evoke fanciful dreams or cautionary tales of childhood. Through her experimentation with mixed media, Weiss aims to create strangely familiar environments that always house something otherworldly to discover.
