To Embrace, mixed media photo collage

In this show, Angel uses a mixed media photo collage technique incorporating gouache and gold leaf to create a rich, heavily textured motif. Her exhibit uses the interaction of text and images to reflect on her survival of ovarian cancer. Angel is in search of a sense of self to give unity to the fragmented body, both literal and metaphorical, knowing all the while that this sense of self can only be tentative. Ms. Angel’s photo-collages have been exhibited in galleries and museums throughout the United States.
