Gumpert's current project, the series of Surface explores the connection between collage and photography and its representation through mass distributed genre of nature photography. Her relationship between intimate images and objects juxtaposed with carefully composed personal narratives utilize appropriated images to create new compositions. Contorting the found images, mostly drawn to colorful and reflective materials and shapes, she is interested in layered images that generate a new territory from conventional interpretations of landscape and studio photography.
