Art Description

Collage: Fabric, Metal, Oil, Ink, Graphite on Stainless Steel, Steel, Other, Canvas, Plastic.

Found objects are normally a key factor in my mixed media sculptures and ever since l started painting on hessian, l have found the freedom to marry both mediums together. When l started to paint this piece, l became more inclined to pick up objects of interest that would work perfectly well on hessian and my color structure. In the process of doing so, l became conscious of the old tradition of arranged marriages. The work intermingles with that tradition as it addresses it in a manner of mockery. Contrary to my technique which is well arranged, matchmaking a lover is not as natural yet it continues to thrive across cultures and traditions and religions. I believe in the freedom of love and want my audience to think about such issues and derive their own conclusions yet appreciate my skill and technique
