“Layers: Recent Works,” mixed media

“The artwork in “Layers” are visual tapestries, combining rich decorative patterns and colors with thoughtful narratives of the unheralded and forgotten members of society. Figurative subjects are woven into the graphic environments of the background using solid line and form, assimilating representational detail with obscurity and negative space. By employing collage-inspired layering of materials and technique, a strong psychological presence and voice is created for these subjects, becoming metaphors for nostalgia and kinship, estrangement and uncertainty.”
