Art Description

Painting: Oil, Acrylic, Paper on Canvas.

Oil, acrylic, ink and mixed media collage on round canvas (TONDO). This piece is part of my "Fauna & Flora" Series. In this series, I employ a hybrid form of painting, drawing and collage as a metaphor for the continual cycle of decay and regeneration in nature. Inspired by forest habitats surrounding the city where I live, I carefully build each work's history as layers of paint, hand-drawn and printed vintage ephemera, toile, Victorian weaving patterns, elements of Chinoiserie, barnacles, lichens, webs and other natural forms develop into an eclectic composition. Fauna and flora are protagonists interacting with what humans leave behind in the environment– ranging from a Louis XV chair to a muscle car or vintage radio. Paper scraps and fragments of what we leave behind as a civilization address the transience of our era. Old and new come together celebrating nature, memory and the cycle of life.

This artwork ships wired and ready to hang unframed. Signed on back.
