collage and acrylic on wood
8.5 x 6 in.
My paintings are poetic metaphors of memories of everyday life. In my travels I find objects to use as collage that reference the pre-fabricated nature of the modern age. I reconfigure these objects into my work, where they take on multiple meanings. I enjoy this juxtaposition.
Seemingly random imagery suggests dream-like mysteries where a Mexican game card or a postage stamp can have as much iconic importance as a Saint or Buddha. We are part of a universe where energies from everything influence each other. This perspective speaks of my quest to discover and understand our world.
