Mixed Media - Original Paintings, Digital And & Mixed Media
WINGS No. 2 -Night Sailing -is mixed media collage of my oil pastels and and digital rendering Although it came together in my studio in Asheville, North Carolina, it started –and was inspired by my residency in Friday Harbor, WA- and was first, one of my early morning projects-- digitized as an "art-tech-block-and-carve” technique I am using here.
I’m attracted to that technique because it can bring together bits from my original art to create a collage, digitally-rendered. Also, the elements, both abstract and organic, become “fusion art” with the objective of story telling.
In this case, the visual narrative - is a metaphor for life, and symbolizes new possibilities, engagement-- and the prospects in an ocean of joie de vivre.
This is a narrative 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 ::WINGS symbolizes transitions, new perceptions that evoke positive change, the embracing of an inner - symbolic-mythic- visual landscape. This piece may have a particular appeal as the visual narrative reveals that even disparate parts can work together. My thought is that visual impressions, founded on simple or more complex designs, can build on a promising tale of life on Earth.
