My mixed media paintings / collages reflect my interest in the physicality of objects, their “thingness:” textures, shapes, colors. Regardless of the series, message, or symbolism, my work includes a variety of traditional media and found objects. In the tradition of Picasso’s collages and Duchamp’s found objects, the stuff of my art is likely to be “ropa usada” or other man-made discards or the discards of nature. I often use the ubiquitous window envelope that transforms into doors or windows.
