Art Description

Collage: Oil, Acrylic, Metal, Fabric, Found Objects on Wood, Steel, Soft (Yarn, Cotton, Fabric), Other, Paper.

"Tight Rope" is a mixed media collage on wood that I carved and cut to give an irregular shape. I twisted copper wires and attached paper leaves to create foliage which served as an extension of the tight rope that runs across the painting.
Trying to maintain a balance in our lives is not easy and can be likened to walking down a tight rope. However, inspite of the challenges, when we strive to remain true to our selves amidst the noise of day to day living, we are able to grow and move beyond the constructs imposed on us.
