2nd Saturday Reception: December 14, 5 pm – 8 pm
Texture, color, value and line (especially curving, linking and flowing lines) are what interest me most when I set out to create a composition. These basic elements of design build the structure for my painting. In this series of female images, I attempt to place these women within these design elements.
I love using the collage papers in my collection of scraps. Included are sheets of tissue paper, some from store wrappings and shoeboxes, some hand-crafted rice paper, and various plant materials such as palm fronds and raffia. And yes, I use paint as well.The clothing, poses and props are my clues to each woman's personality and life. It is my hope that the viewer will fill out the rest of her story.
