Alternative surfaces, materials, found objects, and vintage ephemera/books are integral to Indiana’s work. With a conceptual and visual challenge to what ideas and images are “supposed” to be, she deconstructs and reconstructs with layering, complexity, and warped dimensions, questioning conventions of structure, time, and space. Using the process of creation from destruction inherent in collage, she additionally uses this as a thematic element in her work: creation from destruction is both act and story, both process and finished product.
