Art

In 2016 I began making collage and mosaics.  In addition to the matron saints, here are my pieces.

“Flower of Accomplishment” was my first, made out of my old to-do lists.  Paper on painted Tyvek, 20×20

These companion pieces, Hearts of Love and Sorrow I, II, and III were made from the sympathy cards received after my father’s death.  Complete in spring 2018.  Paper on wood, 24×24

After I finished the twelve Matron Saints, I had another biblical woman to portray: the woman of Revelation 12, clothed with the sun.  You might notice nods to Klimt and van Gogh.  Paper and copper leaf on wood, 22×28.

My latest was inspired by a photograph of my mother with my older brother from 1960.  Having spent time in Europe this summer, in many churches and museums, I offer my updated madonna and child in “Our Lady of Seattle.” Paper on wood, 24×30

This was my attempt at a pointellist collage.  As it nearly drove me crazy, it is my last such attempt.

An experiment – the smallest is about 1 3/4 square.  Fun but a little too exacting.
