TONDO (round painting). Oil, acrylic, ink and mixed media collage on canvas. This piece is a fusion of painting, drawing and collage. It is part of my “Low Tide” series. This series asks the question– what if we were all gone, but our possessions remained? Perhaps they would wind up washing ashore at low tide, with birds foraging them. Who remembers us then, and how? Does it matter? Of course it does. The poetics of our memory weave us all together as human, even when our experiences are very different from one another. All of our possessions and all our memories become part of the perpetual cycle of life found throughout nature. No where is this more evident than near the shore- in tide pools, along beaches, and other natural water ecosystems where decay and regeneration occur so vividly. Ships framed in a beautiful white wood floating frame. Framed size is 21.25 in. Diameter x Depth 1.5 in. (54 cm Diameter x Depth 4 cm)

In my painting practice, I assemble a retrospective of vintage sources such as photography, wallpaper clippings, film posters and other ephemera, layering them in tactile, modernist collages. These collages later serve as sketches that I translate into oil paintings on canvas that appear to be collages, but are not. My faux-collage painting technique creates abstracted landscapes suggesting torn documents or crumbling architectural elements. By layering historical textures and imagery, I highlight how the rise and fall of humanity’s various eras, especially the Modernist era, relates to our place in the environment. Birds land and rest on top of what appear to be collapsed, abandoned monuments. Like us, birds occupy the Earth for a short time. Unlike us, they move freely and leave nothing behind. Birds are protagonists on the world stage we can view on equal terms with ourselves. This series of collages and collage-like paintings is a reminder of our collective history and future, honoring our need to celebrate nature, as well as our need to review and revise past world views. The works invite the viewer to choose simplicity and a better future for us all.
