Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

Paper collage inspired by an original photograph taken by Melanie Ezra. Each collage is a physical reconstruction using tweezers and scalpel and is meticulously recreated in painstaking detail over several days. In 'Turnpike' each letter is applied individually to distort the meaning of the original message.

This collage was based on a photograph of an old turnpike sign at St Fagans museum, near Cardiff, UK

The deconstructed subject matter becomes almost irrelevant since it is the effect of the reconstruction that the viewer is inevitably drawn to. These remarkable narratives speak volumes as to the potential of the photograph.
