Mixed Media - Original Paintings & Digital Mixed Media Collage
Here is lyrical abstraction--("IN A 'BIG' WAY! )--A nod to the power and wonder of ELEPHANTS! This is a a fusion-collage- Although it came together in my studio in Asheville, North Carolina, it started first, as a photo taken by our friends on safari-then to acrylic on canvas then, photographed and digitally rendered.
THEME:: Magnificent Landscapes
Landscapes (inner and outer) offer the opportunity to bring together slices of my original art in a collage, digitally-rendered. Blended elements, both abstract and organic, become a fusion lyrically abstracted and ripe for story telling.
In this case, the narrative is about facing challenges-- a visual metaphor for life as we know it. It symbolizes engagement and possible joie de vivre.
MEDIA:: Sketch for composition to canvas and/or paper, sometimes, oil pastels, sometimes acrylic paint. The result then captured as a photo and brought to create a JPEG. Finally, digital layering of the original materials.
Objective:: Narrative art with emotive content- that offers an opportunity for the viewer to interpret the story being told, and thus add to the story. (Some are inner landscapes.) Whether as a digital abstractionist, working as well on canvas and with photography to produce mixed media images, my hope is to engage the viewer.
Symbolism :: Ever a sense of joy of life, transitions, new perceptions that evoke positive change, the embracing of an inner - symbolic-mythic- visual landscape that can reveal how disparate parts work together when visual impressions, founded on simple or more complex designs, build on a promising tale of life on Earth.
