Description

During recent travel abroad I chose to work small. I packed my bags with 100 sheets of small watercolor paper, glue, scissors, a set of X-acto blades, and a portable cutting mat; along with a few pens and a set of watercolors. Using magazines collected along my travels, I began making a series of collages. These collages where then turned into paintings of the same size.

This work is diminutive at 4.5 x 4.5 inches, but packs a mighty visual punch!

Painted on Archival Fabriano Paper with Peerless Watercolors. The art will be shipped to you flat and ready to be framed.

For me, disassembly and reassembly is a way to translate and ingest information. After making reference collages, I drew from the collages using ink and watercolor. The process of drawing allowed me to digest the ideas and images I had assembled.

The job of magazine editors is to disseminate information for us through image and word. Our job is to consume and then buy the items and ideas as presented on the pages. As a consumer myself, the magazines were used only as a stepping off point for my work. Creating my own design and visual language was the goal. The work is about what we take with us—whether we want to or not.

The new images move towards abstract, my favorite mode of visual communication. The original intent from the magazine editors, photographers, and other artists is still solidly embedded in the images, but so is my own intent.
