Broken Pathways
Media: mixed; collage: combination of digital with
paint, sand, metal, leaves

Both pieces are new as I am exploring having the art work have textile feel. Whether the art has texture itself or just the look texture contained with in the artwork. My mixed-media works (such as my piece, Broken Pathways) evolves when I take the digital image, change it, and restructure it on the canvas by using acrylic paints, torn or ripped paper or canvas, metal, and various other objects. My predilection for abstract art is revealed in the preponderance of grids and fragmentation viewed in my artwork. The digital and mixed-media effect invites the viewer (or critic) to observe or interpret the works, by offering infinite possibilities without limitations. Both works symbolize the fragmentation of life.
