About The Work - 2016

All of my material comes from mid-century magazines and found papers. In 2015 I began hand painting the paper. As the collage takes shape, additional paint and pencil is added to enhance certain elements. I am intrigued by the possibilities of arrangement and structure. There are rhythms; playing with the formal elements, exemplifying the beauty of shape, texture and color. The work infers architecture and the syncopation of music. The creation of the work is a straightforward process; paper forms are laid next to each other until there is unity. It is a practice of free-association and deep-rooted discovery.
