Jayne Surrena holds a BFA in painting and drawing from The University of the Arts in Philadelphia.
Her collages are inspired by observation, memories, and her frequent paging through old books and magazines. Surrena regards each found piece of imagery as a thought and the consequent layers as memories.
‘My memories tend to get mixed up. I place persons at events they were never at,’ she says. ‘Seeing the images on paper allows me to visually relate this concept of memory and time to others.’
