Collage: Paper, Paint, Pencil, Ink on Wood.
This piece is one of the artist’s “recycled works,” part of an ongoing body of work created when the artist deconstructs and transforms previous artwork. In this particular piece, various mixed-media and painted works on paper have been reduced to fragments, which have then been rearranged and re-created as newly transformed artworks. The technique used in this piece is similar to that of mosaic, where smaller individual pieces are cut and fit together into a larger pattern or composition. The space between pieces reveals the ground on which the fragments are adhered, a prepared wood panel, but is also much more. This space between fragments becomes an integral part of the piece, as it records the meeting of past and present, and transmits an ongoing narrative of artistic, and ultimately personal, evolution and growth. This artistic “recycling” process is open-ended and has been underway for over twenty years, and results in a variety of sculptural and three-dimensional installation works, in addition to two dimensional works. But all works in this series are interconnected and interrelated, and share history and meaning. The forms, colors, and textures that comprise any individual piece evolve through the transformation of earlier work. This process, and the evolving history of the raw material used to produce the work, confer upon these works conceptual significance beyond their immediate visual characteristics, and engage viewers in the process itself.
This piece is flush-mounted on a stained white wood box frame. The piece is ready to hang, and is made with archival materials.
