Adrienne Moumin
New York, NY
Neighborhood: Canarsie



ARTIST STATEMENT: Born in 1961 in Brooklyn, NY, I am best known for my hand-cut-and-assembled gelatin silver photo collages, and for the B&W photographs from which they are made. I am a self-taught collage artist, and created my first work at 8 years old, a bookcase covered with meticulously cut and pasted magazine pictures. In 1999, I graduated from SUNY Empire State College with a B.A. in Documentary Visual Studies and Society - a self-styled major which combines my love of photography and commentary. In the early 2000’s I began cutting up my gelatin silver photographs for use in collage, in order to carry on with my work during a period when I had no access to a darkroom. This led to my ongoing Architextures series of hand-cut-and-assembled photo collages. I also create mixed-media surrealist collages, often using one of my store window mannequin photos as the basis for an exploration of an emotional state. I have exhibited my gelatin silver photographs and collages in New York, and nationwide, for over fifteen years. My images have been featured in New York Gallery Guide, About.com, and The Sun Magazine. I have been interviewed for WBAI Radio in New York, and received a Puffin Foundation Grant for a documentary photography project in 2003. I was recently awarded a FY2016 Grant to Individual Artists and Scholars, by the Montgomery County (MD) Arts and Humanities Council. My photographs and collages are in private collections in the US and abroad. I currently live and work in New York and Silver Spring, MD.
