After concentrating on abstract works, I’ve begun exploring how combining representational (depth of field, narrative) and abstract elements (planes, colors, shapes) creates greater visual depths and meanings within a compacted space.
Plug Series #1 (20 mixed media, photo transfer collages)
A collage series celebrating industry and mechanical objects. I purposely kept the collages small (each approximately 9” x 11”, unframed) in order to present the collages on an intimate scale.
Decommissioned (single, mixed media, photo transfer collage for Art Contemplates Industry: Bull Run Exhibit)
A whimsical collage combining narratives of the mothballed power plant (returning the river to salmons) and our forgotten debt for a lifestyle we take for granted.
Plug Series #2 (in progress)
Continuing the first plug series only this time within a narrative framework. This series reminds us of the engineers who take abstract ideas and make them into a physical presence.
Boxed Set Series (in progress, 20+ completed mixed media collages on museum board or canvas from 32” x 40” to 40” x 64”)
The title of the first and last in the continuing series, “When Doors and Boxes Open”, presents the theme that when doors, boxes, or minds open gifts or doomsday and destruction can result. The circular nature of the series begins and ends with the first in the series and continues with abstracts based on creation myths and biblical stories.
