Statement from the Artist
These pieces are about bringing together aspects of previous work. I had not worked with the female figure since I stopped making figurative sculpture a few years ago. Instead, I explored the areas of two dimensional mixed media using color, texture, photographic images and parts of cell phones to create landscapes and cityscapes, some abstract and some more representational. The desire to work with the female figure took over once more, so I went back to my earlier life drawings which were starting points for some of my sculptures. These were scaled down and transformed into simple cut-out shapes to be incorporated into mono printed, collaged environments that tell a story. Some fairly obvious, others may be a little more complex. All open to individual interpretation.
